After creating application (plugin), change default 'workspace data' location [message #504795] Tue, 22 December 2009 12:25 Go to next message

After I create an application (plugin), I go to the plugin.xml Overview
panel and hit 'Lauch an Eclipse Application'. This generates a Launch
configuration with various settings for the launch.

I would like to know if it is possible to change the default 'Workspace Data' location.
Currently, this is auto-generated to be: '${workspace_loc}/../runtime-{name-of-application}

Is there a setting (Windows -> Preferences -> Plug-in Development ...) where I can
change this above 'Workspace Data' location? (I don't want the prefix 'runtime-',
would like it to reside on a tmp filesystem ...) ????

Any information would be greatly appreciated,

Mike Norman

Did you consider creating a product?

Hmm, that's an idea - with a product I could customize:
osgi.instance.area
osgi.instance.area.default
in the config.ini file?
