Executing SetupTasks only once per Workspace [message #1778794] Thu, 21 December 2017 14:36 Go to next message

Hey everyone,

I'm looking for a way to predefine some settings which could be overwritten by users.

Let me explain. I got a project setup with a few setup tasks. I know there are different triggers like BOOTSTRAP, STARTUP and MANUAL.

Question is: is there a way to execute some setup tasks only once per workspace creation? So values will get predefined with different values than the default value but could be overwritten by the user without wiping away these changes at startup.

Example: Let's say I got a setup task to disable the spell checker
      <setupTask
          xsi:type="setup:PreferenceTask"
          key="/instance/org.eclipse.ui.editors/spellingEnabled"
          value="false"/>
      </setupTask>


  • BOOTSTRAP trigger has no effect (because there is no workspace at this time)
  • STARTUP trigger is called on every startup and wipes away user changes
  • MANUAL trigger is not executed at first startup, so not setting my default value

Does anyone have an idea? Maybe via filtering?

Yours
Alex

No, there's no way to do a task only once (expect for task specifically designed to run only one). If your user doesn't like what the preference task does, they can record the preference as a preference task differently in their user.setup, their installation.setup, or their workspace.setup to override the one you provide.
