User specific plug-in configuration and workspace area

Or as I would say: users love … admins nightmare! Anyhow, this is a short reminder how to use a user specific configuration and workspace area. It allows that each user keeps its own set of plug-ins instead of being confused about plug-ins that another user has installed on the same computer previously. Moreover, if no workspace was selected, a default workspace will be set. It’s possible to edit the applications “config.ini” file or to directly set the values in the product file, before compiling the RCP.

-Dosgi.install.area.readOnly
-Dosgi.configuration.area=@user.home/.openchrom/0.6.0/OpenChrom/configuration
-Dosgi.instance.area.default=@user.home/OpenChrom/workspace

Further more, Eclipse allows other sophisticated scenarios like shared configurations too. The following two links may give you an impression of the mightiness of Eclipse:
