Problem Summary

The resources plug-in broadcasts resource change events for files and folders in the workspace. This allows clients to react to changes that occur in those resources, and in the underlying file system. There is no way to receive resource change events for files and folders in the file system that do not belong to the workspace.

In the Java development tools, it would be useful to be able to add folders outside the workspace to a build path of a Java project.
