Hi All,

I have some working sets set up for a project called "test1" .

I have now created a new project called "test2" which contains the same code/dir structure as "test1". Is there a way I can amend my working sets to point at "test2" instead of "test1 " ?

Thanks

Can't you just edit your current working set (the one containing test1) and update it to contain test2 ??
Project -> BuildWorkingSet-> SelectWorkingSet, then you can mark working set to be edited, press edit uncheck test1, check test2 and you're done..
You would need to do that to all working sets using test1 (assuming you want all of them updated).

hope this helps

The project "test1" got corrupted and my working sets stopped pointing to the relevant files. I thought there might be a config file somewhere in eclipse that contains all of the paths to each file in each working set, seems theres not.... ?

Yeah, there is a file describing working sets:
D:\wwnosal\workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.ui.workbench\workingsets.xml

Just look under your workspace metadata

Working set is based on the project, not on the individual files.
