I'm using Eclipse Kepler DSL version (with Xtext and Xtend built-in).

I am using SVN to check my Java/DSL code out to my Windows 7 laptop, and to check-in any changes.

Recently I decided to NOT put .metadata, ./bin, and ./src-gen under revision control. So, the workspaces in question do not have those files and folders in sync with the source code.

If I open Eclipse and then select the workspace in question, Eclipse opens, does not complain about anything, yet nothing appears in the Project Explorer.

So then, I checked out the branch from SVN to a new folder. Tried opening this workspace from Eclipse. Same as before. Then, if I "Import Existing Projects into Workspace" from the original location, everything works.

I'd rather be able to access my workspace in its original location, for obvious reasons.

Hi Gary,

I believe the correct way to do it is to open the workspace and then import the existing projects from the workspace's directory, making sure that "Copy projects into workspace" option is turned off.

Cheers,
Vladimir

Workspaces aren't designed to be portable and should not be checked in to your SCM. Projects are portable and are designed to be shared using SCM.
