Hi

I want to set one preference for all my eclipse workspaces, as of now for every project I have to import the .epf file or copy the .settings into the workspace, but is there any way so that automatically every workspace takes the preference.

Thank You

There's no built-in support for that, but have a look at Workspace Mechanic.

If you have several workspaces but they all use the same Eclipse workbench, you may want to consider using Working Sets within the same workspace.
That way the workspace preferences would be shared amongst the projects.

This looks like a good introduction:

Nidhi,

The Oomph project supports this.

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Installer

Mostly you'll read there about the installer on the wiki, but if you
install the Oomph Setup feature in any IDE (I think it only installs in
Kepler and Luna right now) you'll have the support you need for managing
workspace-specific preferences globally across all workspaces.
Specifically the toolbar will have a button for opening your
user.setup. When that editor is open, there's a preference recorder
button. Any preference you change will be recorded in the user.setup.
These user tasks will be automatically performed on startup (if you have
-Doomph.setup=true in your eclipse.ini), or manually via the toolbar
button for that, in this case you'd be using it only for setting your
global workspace preferences as you wish to have them.
