I have a problem with myEclipse. I have a Struts application set up on the network, and I can import the application source files fine, but what happens is that a copy of the source files are stored within the given workspace. I want to be able to alter the source files and have them save back to the original destination on the network store . I can’t seem to be able to do this. It only updates the copy created in the workspace. Can someone help me ?
Moving to OT > Soft Dev, this is an Eclipse question.
Is keeping your files under source control out of the question? Working across a network can really be a pain even if it’s a fast network in Eclipse (some folks try to store their workspace across a network and only then do they notice *how* much file activity Eclipse creates, really bogs down development)
I figured it out. Apparently in setting up a new project for the first time one can actually link to source from a specific directory. My mistake was in actually using the “Import” functionality. What this does in actuality is create a copy of the files in the /workspace folder which is not what I wanted. I wanted the updates performed on the original files.
