Hi,

I'm in a team in charge to distribute the development tools for all developers in my company.

Currently, we want to accelerate the starting process development with :
- Supply specific distributions (different profile : java, php, etc)
- Fully prefilled configuration.

It's relatively simple with p2 director command line (and ANT script) for install plugins and rebuild some distributions, and "-pluginCustomization" runtime options for major configurations.

But some items cannot be configured by preferences => how can I modify the default workspace creation ?

eg : How can I some put some XXX.lauch files in "[workspace]\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.debug.core\.launches\" when a new workspace is created ?

Is it possible with some file system modifications in customized bundle (after p2 commands, before rebuild in a ZIP) ... or the only solution is the development of a plugin in charge to verify/update elements when workspace is created ?

Thanks in advance.
Best regards.

launch configurations can be shared through source repository. Create them as shared files (common tab).

In addition you can share a project setup with the export of a Team Project Set.
In JDT, to compile with a shared Targetplatform, save the definition of the target platform and share it through source repository.

Hi Martin,

Thanks for this tips. I didn't know the shared configuration in Eclipse.
I will explore this way and try to auto-configure a shared configuration at new workspace startup.
