Hello,

Is Oomph the right tool for doing what I am describing below.

In Eclipse, I want some values in Project->Properties (In the Eclipse Menu) to be set to particular values. Such that when a new Eclipse is installed by the user, he/she will have these values already populated for the new project they are creating. I am particularly interested in "C/C++ Build" and "C/C++ General" under the Project->Properties. (Essentially this will be the factory default from the customers point of view).

Note:- The above is not under Window->Preferences.

Thank you.

Faisal

The Properties... dialog can contain any number of things, that might depend on things such as the project's nature or the project's builders (as stored in the .project file). Projects can only have project-specific preferences as stored under the .settings folder. Of course .*files/folders are hidden by default but can be shown using the Filters... menu item in the little triangle control in the upper right of the viewer. Often, for many types of preferences, you can specific them both globally (workspace-scoped preferences) or in the project (then there will be an "Enable project specific settings" check box). While Oomph can be used apply project-specific preferences, the path of the preferences task specifies exactly the name of the project to which to apply those preferences, so there isn't a way to specify that such preferences apply to all projects. But I imagine that C/C++ preferences are much like Java preferences and that you can specify the global default for the workspace, and can also specify project-specific overrides for those preference. Definitely Oomph can be used to set the global workspace preferences to your preferred values, but it won't help applying project specific preferences to all projects.
