hi,

I am developing a plugin in which i need to save some common data in a xml file which can be stored at some common location in eclipse. I have seen some plugin saves their common file in eclipse_workspace\.metadata\.plugins
Does anybody knows how to do that in eclipse or some other way/location where i can save my common data.

Use the IPreferenceStore (http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.isv/reference/api/org/eclipse/jface/preference/IPreferenceStore.html) and related API.

Thanks for the reply Martin !

I just want to know whether this is the correct location(eclipse_workspace\.metadata\.plugins) to store some common file which can be used by my plugin or there is some other location also which i can use as a common location for storing my xml file.
