Not sure where exactly to put this, because in some ways the existing web app approach technically works I guess this may fall into a feature request.
The problem is that I want to point my project at an existing source controlled web app. My company decided against the IntelliJ standard of having a resources directory that gets copied to the ROOT of the web app upon deployment/compile.
Here is what would be useful; in the Web Resource Directories section the dialog for each entry should have:
This would allow two standard entries that mimmick normal webapp deployments and it would allow me the flexibility to use IntelliJ and abide by my companies various directory policies.
excluded-directories: WEB-INF (and optionally META-INF)
