Hi All,

I need some general information on cvs and eclipse and was wondering if anyone can show me a direction on this.

I'm using wsad 5.0.1.2 that contains the eclipse 2.0.x workbench. In the WSAD/eclipse there is a main menu item called window where we can set the preferences for our workbench (window->preferences).

In that I select Team -> CVS and it contains (console, EXT and Label decorations sub-items).

My question is if we customize the settings, where will the changes reflect. I mean is there an XML file somewhere in the eclipse home directory where I can see the modified entries.

I'm asking this because, if I changes the preferences to the current workspace I'm working on.. and then create a new workspace and start working in it, then the preferences should not be changed from the previous workspace.

I might sound a little bit confusing but more specifically

Can we set preferences to eclipse workbench such that it is reflected in all workspaces we work?

Appreciate anyones kind help in this regard,

ss

Saikiran,
The settings are stored in one of the folders in .metadata. However, you can export the settings to a plain file and then import them into your new workspace.

Missed this one. Preferences are workspace specific now. There is no way to share them globally. You could put them in source control, but you would still have to apply them to each workspace.

Another way of doing it is to copy the whole workspace directory (.metadata) included. This saves your cvs repository settings too.
