Preferences are recorded, but not loaded (!) [message #1722148] Wed, 03 February 2016 06:12 Go to next message

Hi,
I share my eclipse configuration across machines. Oomph is recording preferences into user.setup - and they get committed into a repository; when I change machines, 'git pull'/restart will give me the most recent environment

Example user setup is here: https://github.com/romanchyla/dotfiles/blob/master/eclipse/org.eclipse.oomph.setup/setups/user.setup


so I was working on machine A, thenmoved to machine B. It is the same Eclipse/java/oomph version. But it never loads my keyboard shortcuts (it happily overwrites them! So at least I can confirm it is writing into the same file)

But I don't know if the '/instance/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/org.eclipse.ui.commands' setup tasks gets executed; yet some other preferences, eg: /instance/org.python.pydev/INTERPRETER_PATH_NEW, are loaded just fine

I can't see anything in the log [see below] - and have no idea how to debug this. (A conflict in the binding? Can I run the preferences import manually? What triggers the update? - I think I used to see the oomph quick flash spinning thingy before...but not any more - but i don't know any more...)

I am starting to think that it is a bug. Anybody can shed light on this problem?

Thanks!

roman

Roman,

You can always perform tasks manually using Help -> Perform Setup
Tasks. If you check the "Show all triggered tasks" you can at least
see which tasks are there and even the disabled ones (the ones that
think they don't need to perform).

Thank you, Ed, I completely missed that option. The load is there, however it does ignore the ui.commands - even when I run it manually.

When I update the user.setup, other affected key are detected (and become active) - and when I run the manual update, the log shows the new value was set. However, the /instance/org.eclipse.ui.workbench/org.eclipse.ui.commands is never marked as 'changed'; EVEN IF I manually edit it inside the Eclipse value editor.

And there is no error in Eclipse or oomph setup.log

Does that seem like a bug?

Roman,

How is the value represented? If it's an XML blob, then it needs to
some specialized support in PreferenceTaskImpl because by default, a
preference task whose value is an XML blob will only perform if the
current value in the IDE is absent.

https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=475139
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=470430

If that's the case, please open a Bugzilla with details about how this
specific preference and we can see about providing specialized support
for it.

Hi Ed,
Yes, it is a serialized XML blob - and what you say is consistent with my experience that shortcuts are loaded once (but then never again). Maybe some sort of switch 'override, if present' would solve the situation (?)

I'll open a ticket. Thanks!
