Hi together,

for each time I change the IDE, I have to configure all the Preferences like
- Network Connection with Proxy, etc.
- Type Filters
- Activating Heap Status in the Statusline
- My own Java Templates
- Update Sites Links
- Workspace Location

and a lot of configs.

Is it possible to put this all in a plug-in and every time I change the IDE, I
install my plugin plug-in.

Most of this is saved when you export the preferences. You can then just
import that file into your new workspace.

Another approach is to use plug-in customization. For more details see
