Why are JSPs not shown under J2EE tab?

Why are JSPs and other supporting files not listed under the Web Modules on
the J2EE tab? Servlets and web.xml are there, but nothing else. Are the
rest of the files under the web-roots not considered true J2EE files?

IMHO it would be nice, when working on a J2EE Web Module, if all the files
that are located under the web-roots, excluding the (java) source tree if
they happen to overlap, showed up there.

What does everyone else think?

Now that the webapp tab is gone it seems to only way to get to the jsps is going all the way through the project tree.

I agree Tim, it would be nicer that way.

Yup I agee, everything under the web module setup should show up under
the J2EE tab. As a matter of fact in that tab it should show the
representation of what the exploded directory/war file will end up being
like, this way if you screw up setting various directories as web
resources, you can see it right there by expanding the tab, before you
click make or what ever the heck we're supposed to use to build the dir.
Is should not show everything under the content root, just the
directories marked as web resource. This would make it much like the
web tab, but even better.

Of course all files should be editable from there, you should also be
able to add files and do some refactoring like in the Packages tab. If
a directory is moved up a level via refactoring from saw WEB-INF/jsp to
/jsp, then you should also change its web resource relative root to /
from /WEB-INF.

Just to make sure I did understand you correctly: Let's say I have a directory xxx/jsp/test (where xxx is the project root directory) and I mark the directory xxx/jsp as being a web root of /WEB-INF/jsp. Then I see in the J2EE tab a directory /WEB-INF/jsp/test, and if I create a file there it gets created in xxx/jsp/test.

If that's what you mentioned then I only have to say: absolutely great idea!!!

Yes this is exactly it. You should also see all the stuts, ojb, spring
or whatnot xml files under the WEB-INF dir (or what ever location)
you're pointing them to. Easy access to everything you need for that
one specific web module. This is especially handy if you use common jsp
files and code, a common jsp directory used under many different web
modules, should show up in all of them and be editable in any of them,
and affect all of the other modules. This is great for portlet development.

I doubt this will happen for Aurora, but I think the initiator of this
thread should post an SCR and we can all copy our comments there. Not
sure it's a good place to keep this info hanging without tracking :)

I'm also afraid there's no chance to get it in Aurora. But we definitively have to open a SCR and collect some votes.

Tim, do you open it?

I really miss the web tab as our web root is several layers deep into the file tree from the project root. Being able to quickly navigate to the JSPs and whatnot is needed and Robert's idea sounds like a nice solution that also fits in with the new Web Module setup.

Thanks,
Patrick

Thanks for all the supporting comments. Now go vote for it!

It probably is too late for Aurora, but you never know.

I have currently all my votes blocked at http://www.intellij.net/tracker/idea/viewSCR?publicId=24903 . Once this one is solved you will get a lot of votes from me!

While this would be great to have in Aurora, I think there are other
things more pressing that should take precedence, after all this doesn't
stop us from working, and doesn't make our working life in IDEA
miserable :)

Probably true, bug fixes are definitly a higher priority than new features,
but having complete support for Web Modules in the GUI would be a selling
point for IDEA. If any new features are added, I hope that this will be on
the top of the list.

I agree completely. At this point, it should be a good candidate for 4.1

Scratch that. It's done in 1101.
