as a user you may customize a perspective in terms of Shortcuts,
Commands which views are visible and how they are layed out on the
workbench window. Then they can save the perspective under some name.

So this was how a user can define his/her own perspective.

As a developer you define a perspective

a) programmatically by implementing the IPerspectiveFactory interface

b) or by editing the plugin.xml file. In the latter case you need to
extend the org.eclipse.ui.perspectiveExtensions extension point

So the question is:
Is there a way for the programmer to take advantage of the fact that a
perspective can be saved somehow. I imagine to just export some XML file
from the saved perspective and tell my application or product to use
this for the default perspective.

Any ideas/pointers on that?

Thanks and Regards,
