Will do that - but just wondering what the intended behavior is; I would
expect that facet's should be encouraged to do similar things when it
comes to libraries....and the "Server provides libraries" option for
these two would indicate they at least should let the runtime know about
In any case: Is there a way for a runtime to know which facet's are
being added to a project that it is connected to ?
e.g. if I move a project from runtime/server A to runtime/server B the
classpath should be updated - but that does not seem to happen. Should
it not ?
