Exclude directories & subdirectories from validation in Eclipse

I usually exclude validation in this way, I believe it will be recursive.

  • Right-click on your project and select Properties.
  • Choose Validation from the left-nav menu.
  • If it is not already selected choose “Enable project specific settings”.
  • Find the validator that is relevant for what you want to exclude and click the “…” in the Settings column.
  • Highlight the Exclude Group and click Add Rule. (If you don’t have any existing exclusions you may have to add an Exclude Group.)
  • Select Folder or file name as the Filter Type.
  • Click Next.
  • Select Browse Folder and find the folder you want to exclude.
