Custom Configuration for Eclipse IDE for Java [message #1851845] Tue, 19 April 2022 18:34 Go to next message

I am interested in finding out how to do a configuration of Eclipse IDE for Java. I'm performing a silent installation by unzipping the files into the desired folder, but would like to configure the network settings, disable autoupdate, etc. I would like these applied for all users that use the app on the workstation.

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

Some preferences are configuration scoped and are stored in the installation folder, but I'm not sure those preferences are 'inherited' by each user's surrogate installation, hidden in the ~/.eclipse folder. Does each user have their own writable installation? Configuration scoped preference you can keep in the zip file of the installation. Other preferences are instance scoped (workspace scoped), and those must be set by the user for each workspace.

Perhaps you'd be better off using something like Oomph to install your own custom IDE with exactly the set of plugins you want and with all the settings the way you want , and perhaps even automatically set up the projects on which the developer works.

Here's an example of how it's used:
