JSF 2.x project. Unable to resolve resources?

So (unfortunately) we have a JSF application that we continue to support. We're in the process of updating the platform and gaining significant ground on the process.

One thing that continues to annoy me, is Intellij apparently has an issue recognizing resources in the resources folder (css, images, etc.) ?

For example:

though when deployed these references are found with no issues.

I believe I have the requisite plugins installed for supporting jsf development, I don't seem to have issues with any other referencing through the IDE.

Is this a bug or a user problem?


Does https://stackoverflow.com/a/13541195/104891 help?

It looks like your resources are in the wrong place, should be moved inside webapp directory.


Well I'll be darn. Thanks! Do you know if that should also include property files too?


Properties such as resource bundles that should go into the classpath of the application should be still placed in main/resources.


Yep, figured that out... Thanks for the help again Serge!
