I've created a launch configuration for an external tool in Eclipse. In the Common tab I've made it "shared". When I look in the launch file it contains (among other things) this line:

<stringAttribute key="bad_container_name" value="\MainComponent\Test_configuration"/>

What's the purpose of this line? What's with the "bad"?

My objective of all this is to create a generic launch file for an external tool that I want to use in many different projects. Everything in the launch file seem pretty generic, except the "bad_container_name" thing.

I know I'm reviving an 3½ year old post, but I came across the same thing today. Anybody out there who knows the answer?

I also just found that entry in the launch configuration file. There is a comment in the org.eclipse.debug.ui.CommonTab that explains its purpose:

> This attribute exists solely for the purpose of making sure that invalid shared locations can be revertible. This attribute is not saveable and will never appear in a saved launch configuration.

Apparently the last part is not true.

I think the implication is that it never appears in the UI.
