How best to exclude eclipse folders

We are seeing a productivity hit in our development group and would like to exclude all eclipse folders and workspaces from virus scans. What is the best way to do this? From what I have found online, I am unsure if any of these will work or which is best:

C:\eclipse*\

or

C:\eclipse*\**

or

C:\eclipse*\**\

The idea is to enforce that eclipse folders start with the word "eclipse" and can have anything on the end of it, such as C:\eclipseJuno

Likewise the same question for workspaces (that start with the word "workspace"):

C:\users\*\workspace*\

or

C:\users\*\workspace*\**

C:\users\*\workspace*\**C:\users\*\workspace*\

C:\users\*\workspace*\**

or

C:\users\*\workspace*\**\

c:\eclipse*\

c:\users\*\workspace*\

The reality is that unless this application generates a lot of really small files then you simply won't need to exclude these. You should really download McAfee Profiler and see what it actually says is being touched.

Re: How best to exclude eclipse folders

I have the same questions about policy handling for eclipse but on the OSX platform. Specifically 10.8.5 and 10.9.2.

Is there a profiler for the Apple OS?

I did find this KB but that's not what I need: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB57072

I want to create the most effective policy for my developers on the Apple platform but I want to understand and justify why. The Profiler for Windows is pretty good for that purpose, hoping for the same on the Mac.
