Re: Re: [Subclipse-users] Eclipse .metadata folder in SVN

I know the feature exists in Eclipse 3.2, but it is essentially a
tool-specific feature. So if you are not using the Eclipse Java
tools, your tool might not support it anyway. With the Eclipse JDT,
you right-click on project and choose properties. There are a number
of property pages where you can override the system preferences and
have project-specific settings. The convention that Eclipse plug-ins
follow is to store these in a folder named .settings inside your
project. But again, this is all tool specific, and each tool could
have this feature or not as well as implement it however they choose.
