Hi,

I have an installed RCP product. Id need to write a temporary file and
would ideally like to place it in the workspace directory eclipse creates
under your project when you build the product. I dont however know in
advance under what base directory the deployment team will install my app.
I tried using a relative path for the filename but im trying to start XL
with the file and it wants the full pathname - how can i find out on the
fly where my app is installed so i can supply the full pathname of the
workspace directory ?

thanks,

steve.

IPath workspace = Platform.getLocation();
File file = new File(workspace.toString())
String fullPath = file.getAbsolutePath();
