I have a small RCP application. After the application is built (either using a PDE headless build or using the product export wizard) when I start it a 'workspace' folder is created in the same folder with the application .exe file.
It contains a '.metadata' subfolder.

On the other hand the Eclipse IDE creates this folder in my user.home folder or the RSSOwl application creates a '.rssowl2' folder also in my user.home folder.

Is there a way to control where the '.workspace' folder is created or how it is named?

Search for the osgi.configuration.area.default and
osgi.configuration.area system properties.

Hello Tom

Thank you for the info. It was just what I needed.
