Re: [platform-dev] recommended way placing the workspace relative to the location of the launcher

The help has a bunch of options, but none that covers your use case as far as I can see -

That said, I did see this commit come through and it may add a new option from 2021-06 of @launcher.dir, but that seems so far only implemented to resolve (and allow relocation of) the install area, rather than the workspace.

Also, do you have a special use case? because AFAIK workspaces are not relocatable. Certainly JDT / CDT put absolute paths in the workspace metadata.

what the eclipse-installer produces:


If I use the simple approach:


this is placed in the current working(!) directory but not relative to
the /eclipse folder...

What I have tired so far (without success):

- @config.dir/<somepath>
- reference:<somepath>
