Remote Workspace [message #17624] Mon, 07 January 2008 10:07 Go to next message

I'm not sure if this is the right newsgroup to ask, but...

I am developing a plug-in for a project our company is working on
(O'Reilly Media). What I need to do is have the *entire* workspace
reside on a remote Linux server. Is this possible to do programmatically
via the plug-in? For example:
ResourcesPlugin.getWorkspace().getRoot().getLocationURI() would return
the URI of the workspace on the Linux server. If this is possible, can
someone point me in the right direction? It seems like this should be
possible through some implementation of EFS but I'm kind of up against a
brick wall as to which.

Thanks,

Hello Michael,

if it's for the entire workspace, I'd recommend setting up a Samba share
on your remote Linux box.

You can, of course, also use RSE / EFS via SSH or other protocols, but
it will be a lot slower and more cumbersome than Samba.

What kind of network protocol access to the remote system can you get?

Cheers
Martin
