About Eclipse Project Metadata

Project metadata is stored in Dimensions CM when you add a project to Dimensions CM control. The metadata identifies the IDE type (Eclipse), the actual project name in Eclipse, and other project specific information. The metadata is stored as attributes for the Dimensions CM project that is associated with the Eclipse project.

The metadata allows Dimensions CM to identify that a project is associated with Eclipse. Thus the Dimensions for Eclipse Plug-in is able to display only Eclipse projects in Serena Explorer.

NOTE  Previous versions of the Eclipse SCC integration used a project marker file to store similar types of data. The project marker files had extensions of ecl. These files are now used with Eclipse project containers.
