Error description

  • Abstract:
    
    Attempts to refactor or move files between folders under the
    'WebContent' folder may cause expanded Web project sub-folders
    or even the entire 'WebContent' folder to collapse
    
    Problem:
    
    In some cases, you may observe your Web project folders collapse
    in the Enterprise Explorer view when refactoring JSPs, for
    example, moving a JSP from one sub-folder to another.  This
    behavior has been observed specifically when the Web project is
    under CVS source control.
    
    To reproduce:
    -------------
    (1) You have a project, under CVS source control, with a
    structure similar to the following:
    
    MyWeb
       ? WebContent
          ? jsps
             ? folder1
                page1-1.jsp
                page1-2.jsp
             ? folder2
                page2-1.jsp
                page2-2.jsp
    
    (2) Select 'page1-1.jsp' and drag it to 'folder2'
    
    Result: Web project folder/nodes simply collapse; no errors
    appear.
    
    
    The problem is caused by a listener that performs a refresh
    whenever there are *any* changes on a [Java] project, but the
    refresh should only occur when there are build path or file
    content changes.
    
    Local fix:
    
    Disconnect the project from CVS source control and retry the
    refactoring.
