Your Development & Design Resource
XPages, Domino Designer in Eclipse, Package Explorer, and the case of the missing xsp.properties

Enabling the Packet Explorer View Pane within the IBM Domino Designer in Eclipse Client will allow you to see your Lotus Notes Domino apps in a new light and give you access to things like the xsp.properties -- a resource critical to advanced XPage development.
The xsp.properties resource can be used to set global variables and override default rendering or behavior for your XPages.
To find the xsp.properties resource, you must enable the Package Explorer, where you will find the resource in the [db]\WebContent\WEB-INF\xsp.properties.
It's missing by default, however...
That's because the xsp.properties resource is not created until you first save the Application Properties in the Domino Designer in Eclipse Client.
Once you've saved the Application Properties Design Element, you will see your xsp.properties resource in the DDE Package Explorer!
Now you can add global variables to your XPages like
foo=blah or (as pointed out by Niklas on my last post) disable the rendering of the Dojo Script Libraries via
