To avoid the problem of dependencies (e.g. PDT 2.1 is not working on Eclipse
used for 2.0), etc, the best is using the package All-in-one. But that
solution brings another problem that need a little know how I don't have:
how to migrate custom information? E.g. how to backup/restore templates,
indentation values, Javascript validator->error/warnings, etc.?

As far as I know. All your preferences and settings are stored in your
workspace directory. Usually it is located in your
Document and settings directory:

C:\Documents And Settings\YourUserName\workspace (Windows XP)
C:\Users\YourUserName\workspace (Vista)

This directory still exists after upgrading all-in-one package.

Regards.

Just use the same workspace as before and all your settings will be
retained.

Be warned though that this unfortunately left my old Eclipse Europa PDT
1 version unusable since it cannnot start anymore...

And I too would have switched back for performance reasons since a
2.5Ghz Dual Core with 4GB Ram is obviously not enough for all the new
features :(


So (Warning: noob tip) make a backup before ;)

Cheers,
Christopher

Yes I've found them. Are located under <workspace>\.metadata

@Christopher
The problem is quite surely that new versions could change the number and
usage of parameters, so upgrading and downgrading to previuos versions can
generate problems. E.g. a parameter X=(n1 to n3) can contains n4 that
previous version Europa can't handle.


Thanks everybody!
