Sharing project properties
You can store the current set of project properties so that they are included with the rest of the content when the project is imported into a different workspace. This eliminates the need to reset the properties.
To share the current project settings:
1. Right-click the project folder in the Project Explorer view and select Properties from the context menu.
2. In the left pane of the Properties window, select Progress OpenEdge > Custom.
3. On the Custom tab, click Share Settings.
Sharing settings saves the property settings in a file called project.xml, located in the project's root directory.
Note: The project.xml file does not contain PROPATH settings, source and build folders, or database connection information. PROPATH settings and source/build folder settings are saved in the project's .propath file. Database connection settings are saved in the project's .dbconnection file.
If project.xml file is not present when a project is imported its properties revert to default settings.
