Hi Folks,

I have a customer that wants to better understand the contents of the
files that reside in the .settings directory for the various kinds of
J2EE projects. In particular, they were asking for either XSD or DTD
for the legal tags/values.

I'm not even sure if this is something that is considered public
information. Certainly the usual disclaimer of "don't call us" would
apply if someone were to experience problems after modifying one of
these files directly. But all the same, I'd appreciate any pointers
anyone could provide relating to valid values for these files.

Thanks,
- Paul

Hi Paul,

Here is what I know about the XML files in .settings generated by WTP.

..settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.component
This is used by the WTP Java EE Tools project to persist the model structure
of the Java EE modules.
Doc:
http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/jst/components/j2ee/api/modu le_core_api.html
XSD: http://www.eclipse.org/webtools/moduleCore.xsd

..settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.xml
This is used by the WTP Faceted Project Framework for persisting the
project's facets. I don't find documentation about this files, but there is
an article about facets:
http://www.eclipse.org/articles/Article-BuildingProjectFacet s/tutorial.html

..settings/.jsdtscope
This seems to deal with the JavaScript classpath. I cannot find any
documentation about it.

The *.prefs file are just preferences files that override some of global
workspace preferences for this project.

HTH,
Kaloyan
