How to change the default config for an exported eclipse product [message #331678] Tue, 16 September 2008 10:23 Go to next message

Originally posted by: j4r0d.hotmail.com

Hello,

I am exporting an eclipse product with some of my plugins.
As this Eclipse is meant for a special use, I wish I could export my Eclipse
with a little bit different settings (especially some options in the
preference menu) :

- Launching : I want the option "Always launch the previously launched
application" to be the default choice rather than "launch the selected
resource..."

- Compiler : I want the default compiler compliance level to be 1.3 rather
than 1.6.

How can I do that?



One last question,
In my eclipse folder I have an eclipse.ini containing the following lines:
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
1024m
-vmargs
-Xms128m
-Xmx1024m

Obviously this file is ignored by Eclipse and I don't know why. However, if
I launch Eclipse with the following command line, this is working well :
Eclipse.exe -vmargs -Xms128m -Xmx1024m

Why is my eclipse.ini file not working? How can I fix this?


Thanks for your help.

J.

Note: I'm copying this to the RCP newsgroup.

There was a thread recently on the eclipse.platform.rcp newsgroup where
someone outlined how to do something similar. Perhaps that person will
chime in again...

Why do you say "obviously?"
Are you talking about Eclipse your dev tool or your Eclipse-based RCP
product? If the latter, note that the .ini file has to have the same
name prefix as the executable file. For example, MyProduct.exe will look
for MyProduct.ini

Hope this helps,
Eric

Thanks Eric for the "MyProduct.ini" explanation. It now works very well.

Regarding my first question, I have found the attribute I'm interested in
with the file -> export -> preferences
The interesting lines are:

/instance/org.eclipse.debug.ui/org.eclipse.debug.ui.UseConte xtualLaunch=false
/instance/org.eclipse.jdt.core/org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler .compliance=1.3


I've tried to put those lines into my plugin_customization.ini before
exporting the platform:

org.eclipse.debug.ui/UseContextualLaunch=false
org.eclipse.jdt.core/compiler.source=1.3


But unfortunately, this is not working...
Do you guys have any ideas about this? Have I missed something?
Thanks for your answers.

This is what you need in your plugin_customization.ini

org.eclipse.jdt.core/org.eclipse.jdt.core.compiler.complianc e=1.3
