Since writing up that post, I noticed there’s an update to
frontend-maven-plugin that contains a configuration setting to add an
outputdir that automatically refreshes the given folder inside of Eclipse. That’s wonderful, it’s exactly what I wanted.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to force the rebuild of the webjar that project was building, which means I still have to manually refresh. Sigh. I’ll figure it out at some point, but until then, if you’re not supplying your assets using webjars it’ll work great.
