Using Environment Variables So You Can Commit Your .project File

Quick Update: this apparently only works with Zend Studio for Eclipse. Sorry for any confusion if you’re trying to figure out where the f$#@ those dialogs are.

All of my projects reside in an SVN repository and now they’re starting to get accessed by multiple users.  Typically with eclipse, I would just have a project that contained externally required libraries – such as the Zend Framework – but now the location of this is required to be more flexible.

Eclipse and Ubuntu 8.04

I was having some trouble running Eclipse 3.3 Europa on Hardy Heron.  It was unstable, crashing a lot, and hogging way more ram than it normally hogs.

Then I realized what I’d forgotten to do on this fresh install.  I forgot to simply ‘sudo update-java-alternatives -s java-6-sun’ and voila, it works like a charm.

Eclipse doesn’t work well with the gjc java (the ‘free’ and default) Hopefully this little thing won’t be an issue in the future when sun java 7 (open java) is ready to rock the free world.
