Tired of subversion folders and files showing up in your Eclipse project navigator and/or search results? Me too, luckily I found an easy way to banish them. First, right click on your project from the project navigator and select 'Properties'. Under 'Resource' select 'Resource Filters'. Finally click 'Add...'.
What you want to do is create an exclude all filter type for folders and all children with the name '.svn'. Click OK twice to make them go away. I also found this prevents the files inside the SVN folders from appearing in search results.
