import Eclipse preferences via command line? [message #312330] Wed, 07 February 2007 00:25 Go to next message

Is there a command-line-only way to import Eclipse instance preferences?
That is, a way to perform the equivalent of
File->Import->General->Preferences->Import All, without actually launching
the IDE?

There was a brief thread on this a week ago, but the only suggestion was to
use the -configuration flag, and that apparently does not work when aimed at
a .epf file (it wants to see something like a .metadata directory).

I also explored the -plugincustomization option, but as far as I can tell it
doesn't do anything at all! Even if it did, though, it doesn't seem like
what I want - the documentation says that it sets different defaults, but I
think what my customer wants is to be able to change the existing (possibly
non-default) workspace settings, just as Import Preferences would do.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?
