Eclipse - You Live and Learn.

| Comments

Yesterday, I complained about large fonts being used in Eclipse runtime instances on Mac OS X. Much to my delight, Chris was kind enough to point out that you can define a launch configuration template for PDE-based launches. It is a bit hidden and doesn’t have the “launch” keyword assigned. To globally define launch config parameters, open the preference dialog and navigate to Plug-in Development –> Target Platform –> Launching Arguments:

[caption id=“attachment_130” align=“alignnone” width=“500” caption=“Launch template for PDE launches”]Launch template for PDE launches[/caption]

After ou have defined your favourite launching arguments, subsequently created launch configurations will be initialized with these arguments: [caption id=“attachment_133” align=“aligncenter” width=“500” caption=“Launch configuration”]Launch configuration[/caption]

Who would have thought you can learn something by just filing a bug?
