Eclipse: Avoid Validation of Maven /target Folders

In eclipse maven project it’s annoying that Eclipse IDE always validates all files from the /target/ folders – which makes no sense in any case.

To avoid this validation you can disable the specific validator in the workspace preferences. Go to validators and edit the XML and JSF Validator and add a ‘Exclude Group – Rule’ for the folder

/target

You can also exclude specific files. In my case I exclude the file

glassfish-application.xml
