hi all,

i am newbie to eclipse. I have eclipse helios in ubuntu 10.10. However, for any file I create, the file gets created in my home folder rather than in the workspace of my project. Please help me how to change the default path name for this, in eclipse..

Thanks in advance.

How are you trying to create your file? Please provide a snippet. Is
it for a java app, or an eclipse plugin?

Guess: If you are using java.io.File to create "files", they will show
up in your current working directory, most often your $HOME.

The workspace applies to eclipse plugins using the
org.eclipse.core.resources plugin and IProject/IFolder/IFile.
