I think this is the best place to post my question, as it is about eclipse in general, not about a specific language IDE. Sorry if Im wrong.
Let me introduce my "problem":
In my company we use an eclipse-based application to generate the configuration of a given software. The workflow is:
1) Open the project and edit the configuration in a GUI.
2) Generate two xmls files containing the configuration.
3) Store in our control version system the edited project file, and the two generated files.
This workflow caused some inconsistencies in the past, when someone just stored the generated files, but not the project file, or viceversa.
I would like to automatize the generation of the configuration, so when the whole software code is compiled, the xmls are generated. This could reduce the risk of inconsistencies.
For doing that, I should have to find the way to open the project and generate the xmls files programmatically. Is there any way to do that? I am not an expert in eclipse, so if you could recommend me any documentation/API I should read I will really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!
