Shocked I am creating a personal assistant for Ubuntu desktop. For this project i need to get all the files which are used by software. So i want to get list of all recent projects on which i worked in eclipse. I also need to understand where does the eclipse store the work space information so that when we next time open eclipse it starts from where we left. Please help me to understand this file structure used by eclipse software.

A workspace folder always has a .metadata subfolder. Under that is a
..plugins folder. Under that are folders where bundles store their
workspace-specific information. For example org.eclipse.core.runtime
has a .settings folder where workspace-specific (and plugin-specific)
preferences are stored, and org.eclipse.core.resources has all the
information about which projects are in the workspace. But much of this
information is stored in a binary format, so it's not so easy to process
that information just by munging through the files that are present (and
the file formats are not really API; their subject to arbitrary format
changes).
