Say goodbye to the tedious refreshing of your workspace after building the widgetset or running a build script that modifies files! This plugin for eclipse will make all resources refresh automatically!

By default Eclipse only provides a polling mechanism for automatically finding which files have changed outside of Eclipse. This plugin implements the same thing using native file system events, which means much faster and less resource intensive refreshing of the resources.

See Paul Verest answer about using the native hooks (no plugin required).

Thanks Paul Verest for pointing out the native functionality. I blame the fact that when you search for this in search engines, the Eclipse documentation don't appear clearly about it, but this plugin does.

I wonder how does relate to "refresh with native hook" in standard Eclipse Preferences?
