Deployment View???

So after I finally get my project to run, I notice in the J2EE tab there is a deployment view. What does this represent? Is this the exploded directory? If so what is the difference between the relative web root representation view and the Deployment view? These files are virtually the same as far as I can tell. Is there a way to have one or the other? It seems to be a waste to have both.

That is intended to show your web module structure exactly as it will be inside deployment exploded directory or WAR file.
Essentially it shows contents of your WAR file except that pressing F4 on any file there leads you to the original source file.
E.g., if you have configured web module with deployment descriptor in c:\web1\myweb1.xml; web resource dir in (c:\web1\res mapped to
/jsp), then deployment view will show:
/WEB-INF/web.xml (F4 brings to c:\web1\myweb1.xml)
/jsp/1.jsp (F4 brings to c:\web\res\1.jsp)
/jsp/2.jsp (F4 brings to c:\web\res\2.jsp)

Well yeah I surmized this much, but you also have the other directories showing the relative paths, and it just seems like more info than you need. I can't seem to find a way to hide one or the other, is that possible, or will be added?

Thanks

Yeah, when I originally requested this feature, I asked for it to be an
alternate view for the J2EE Web Modules; with the ability to switch between
the standard view and the Deployment view by clicking on a toolbar button.
It would be much better if that part of the request was implemented too.

How about this.

There is the icon for J2EE Application Modules, EJB Modules, Web
Modules. Let's add another icon for "Deployment View" up there.

Does this make sense? I have never used the J2EE stuff (heard too many
complaints) to know if this is a ridiculous request.

Actually this makes total sense.

Why do you want to move Deployment View from inside Web module up?
Do you mean something like

/Deployment View
/Deployment View/App modules
/Deployment View/Web modules
/Deployment View/Web modules/myWeb/...

/Deployment View/Web modules/web1/...
/Deployment View/EJB modules
/Deployment View/EJB modules/ejb1/...


I think there is no any sense to show Deployment view for application modules and little sense for EJB modules.
This feature is adding value for web modules only where complex web resource directories mapping can be difficult to see in traditional view.

What I would like to see is a new toolbar button (tooltip: Show Web Resource Directories) above the Project/Packages/J2EE tabs that would function similarly to the Show Modules toolbar button for the Packages tab. You would click the button to toggle between viewing the J2EE tab in Deployment View (new view) or Web Resource Directory View (original view). That way either view is accessible without cluttering up the tree with the other view.

The toolbar button would only be available when the J2EE tab is selected, similar to the Show Modules and Show Library Contents buttons that are only available when the Packages tab is selected.
