Programmatically import pre-existing project from other workspace [message #909218] Thu, 06 September 2012 14:41

Could anyone point me to an example of importing a general project, one that just holds files with no particular nature, into a workspace? The projects currently exist in another workspace root and I would like to reference them.

I am able to programmatically load the other project using...


// Load the project description from the workspace
projectDescription = ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace() .loadProjectDescription(Path.fromOSString(defaultProjectFile .getAbsolutePath()));

// Load the project
IPath projectPath = Path.fromOSString(defaultProjectDirectory
.getAbsolutePath());
project = workspaceRoot.getFolder(projectPath).getProject();

but the only file listed in the project is the .project file. None of the other files (pictures, .png) are listed.

I found a link describing how to do this with Java projects using JavaCapabilityConfigurationPage, but I don't think that will work, based on the API description, for a general project.

I would like to reference this external project instead of copying the files. Any thoughts? Any help is greatly appreciated!
