Our project has an existing .target file included in the source code, usually user has to setup the target platform using this .target file in eclipse. So how can I configure in oomph setup file to automatically set target platform using this existing .target file? Thanks.

You can use a Target Platform task. In that task, you can specify the
name of the target definition file; just the file name without the
..target extension. A Targlet task would do this job more efficiently,
reusing the bundle pool, but if you don't want to author/maintain one of
those, you can just reuse the existing *.target file.

Eike pointed out to me it's the name of the target platform itself,
i.e., the name specified within the file:

<target name="<target-name>"

Does the .target file have to be in a specific folder in order to be found?

No, it is found by name, i.e., exactly the name in the *.target file:
<target name="Xyz" ...
so the *.target can be anywhere in the workspace.
