How to turn off PDE cache in .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core? [message #369] Tue, 08 April 2008 12:36 Go to next message

When doing a complex feature export the PDE can become confused and refuse
to export a perfectly valid feature. The workaround I use to "fix" this
issue is:
1) shutdown the workbench
2) delete everything in .metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core
3) restart the workbench
4) perform the export again, which will now succeed

Unfortunately, the cycle time on this workaround is rather large for a big
workspace. Is there a way to either clear this cache without a restart or,
even better, keep it from being created in the first place?

Thanks,
Todd

To clear the cache, try the hidden system property pde.nocache=true :)

Chris,

Thanks very much. That seems to have done the trick!
