Separate Workspace files from project completely? [message #502278] Mon, 07 December 2009 15:11 Go to next message

I have a project directory separate from my workspace, but when I import projects it seems to still generate the eclipse artifacts (.project, .settings, etc) inside the project directory.

I want those to be generated in the workspace instead, not in the project dir. Any idea how to do that?

Thanks

the .project and .settings will always be inside your <project> directory, even if you create a project in the workspace but point it to another location on your file system. There are a couple of reasons, like this information needs to be captured in the VCS.

The only way to do what you want would be to create a project in the workspace, and then start adding linked folders and linked source folders to your "real" project in some other location on the file system.

That way the top level of the <project> is pointing to a directory in the workspace and won't effect your external directory tree.
