Dear all,

I read with much interest about all the possibilities of eclipse Oomph to facilitate project-specific eclipse installations.

However I am missing the link between the Oomph setup and the .project files. At the moment we try to keep the project specific settings in the .project files (i.e. custom build commands, custom defines per build configuration etc.)

How are the settings saved in the .project file related to the Oomph setup? Will they be overridden?

Furthermore, is it still a good idea to keep the .project files in the SVN repository?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Hi Niklaus,

Oomph "projects" are different from Eclipse IDE "projects" in your workspace.
Oomph projects are more related to Eclipse Foundations projects (such as Xtext, EMF, JDT, Mylyn, etc. see ) as in you create a Setup model that describes how you want to set up a development environment for them.
As part of an Oomph setup, you will probably import actual workspace projects from e.g. a Git repository and if you are working on Eclipse related code (Plug-in projects) it is generally a good idea to keep .project files in the repository.

Hope that helps.
