      Description

      Some users who have very customized build scripts may prefer to not use the classpath container and related dependency management at all.

      Instead, they may just want to rely on running the gradle eclipse task to generate eclipse configuration for their projects instead.

      A 'generate only' mode would probably only do limited modifications to the generated files, like adding a gradle nature.

      It should be possible to

      • to chose a 'generate only' option in the wizard.
      • easily refresh project configuration by invoking the task again and resynching the generated resources in the project with Eclipse workspace state.
