|Re: [emf-dev] [CDO Releng tools] Dynamic working Set|
Thanks for your answer and happy New Year!
I am not sure I understood your answer. This is probably because I do not know what “scoped preferences” are.
From a user point of view, export/import preferences should work:
- File > Export/Import. In the tree: General > Preferences. I would expect a “Dynamic Working Sets” category. (In my current workspace I have: Installed JREs, Java Code Style Preferences, Java Compiler Preferences, SVN Preferences).
- With 2 additional buttons (import/export) in the “Dynamic Working Sets” preference page.
In my opinion one of the two mechanisms should be available.
2] Reload Button.
I have opened a change request:
I have seen that the bug is already assigned to you.

They are imported/exported along with all the other instance scoped preferences, so I suppose a poor-man's solution would be to edit the exported
preference file to exclude all but the working set preference. The setup tool could be used just to manage preferences, though it would need a bit of tweaking for that. I'm also working on a tool to manage project-specific preferences; it should be ready
next week. In general I want it to be usable to manage all preferences and to be able to use the setup tool to manage those preferences so one can have consistent personal preferences across all your installed IDEs (and consistent project-specific preferences
for all the projects you maintain)...
2] rebuild or reset?
Consider following situations:
* delete a working set corresponding to a dynamic working set (Package explorer > Triangle menu > Configure working sets…)
* create a new project that should be in a working sets. In the project creation dialog select “Add project to working sets” and select one of the dynamic working sets.
The result I got are OK, but it is easy to produce a case that is in contradiction with what is defined by the Dynamic working sets model.
Yes, you can modify the working sets as you see fit once it exists...
This is why I was expecting a “force reset” function. This would recreate the dynamic working sets (or maybe all working sets) according to what is defined in the model.
Yes, we should have an apply button in the preference page.
The current workaround I use is to rename one of the working set. Save. Rename back to the original name. Save.
Open a bugzilla about the apply button and I'll add it.
Thanks in advance for your answers,
