ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace() returning wrong location [message #926129] Fri, 28 September 2012 10:27 Go to next message

Hi All,

During application debugging, I have code that executes looking up project resources.

This is reporting an error because of the relative path of .

My current folder is detected as: C:\apps\Studio_180131_846\studio\studio

This is correct as eclipse.exe is here: C:\apps\Studio_180131_846\studio\studio\eclipse.exe

However, when I try to get the project location to read the resource that's where the problems start.

ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot().getLocation(); returns C:/Users/ronan.crowley/workspace
But, No such folder exists!

My real workspace is: C:\apps\Studio_180131_846\workspace\

Any suggestions?

Cheers,
Ronan

Update to say, that when I launch the debugger the folder C:/Users/ronan.crowley/workspace is being created for some reason

Looks like my issue was specific to the way my debugger launched.

I am launching a BIRT report debugger, which seems to behave a little differently than expected.

Anyway, there is a BIRT specific System property set

System.getProperty( "use.resource.folder" ) which returns the exact location I am interested in:
C:\apps\Studio_180131_846\workspace\DebuggerTestProject
