Project Set Files (PSF)

I was recently working with the Apache Commons Httpclient library to move it into the Orbit project. Mylar (and other projects) was looking forward to using this library out of Orbit directly instead of including it as an additional library (yuck!). Eugene Kuleshov recently commented about how painful it would be for developers to work with Orbit bundles because developers would have to grab bundles from another repositories in order to get their workspace compiling. Well, let me introduce you to something called Project Set Files. They are a form of black magic that comes from the Team “team.” PSFs allow you to quickly materialize a workspace and are commonly found in “releng” projects (for Eclipse projects that know about them). I highly recommend using them 🙂
