Hi All -

I am rather new to RAD and have a question regarding the archive file/project types to export/import into RAD....What I am looking for is to export an archive/project file from RAD
on one pc and basically just import it into RAD on another pc, however the problem I am having is that I am using .PIF (Project Interchange File) to do this and when I import it into RAD
on the destination pc, the project structure is created, BUT the server profile & server is not "set-up"....I guess what I am asking is what type of file will basically get me up and running
immediately, with basically nothing else needed to configure or define, with exception of starting the server?....I GREATLY appreciate any help!!....

Thanks to All!

The only ".pif" file I know of is a Windows executable format intended to assist in running command-line (DOS) apps and occasionally used as a virus container.

You can export an Eclipse (RAD) project fairly easily. The only significant parts of the project that aren't actually part of the project sources are the ".project" and ".classpath" files, although additional support files/directories are sometimes made - which can usually safely be lost - but if you ZIP or do a directory just include everything in the project directory and you're OK.

Environmental stuff like the list of VCS servers, test servers, run/debug profiles, editor options and so forth don't belong to the project, however.. They belong to the particular instance of Eclipse you're running. Many, although not all of them have individual import/export facilities of their own.

The lack of an ability to do wholesale Eclipse settings import/exports is something some of us were crying about not too long ago.

Hi Tim....I don't believe exporting a Project Interchange File (.PIF) is an option in Eclipse...but the .PIF does capture everything related to the project like you refer to zipping the project directory....so, let me ask this...when you say "Environmental stuff like the list of VCS servers, test servers, run/debug profiles, editor options and so forth don't belong to the project, however.. They belong to the particular instance of Eclipse you're running. Many, although not all of them have individual import/export facilities of their own".....What option do I need to select in eclipse to export these environmental settings?.....Usually RAD and Eclipse have most of the same exporting capablities (with exception of the .PIF)...Thanks for your help!
