Refer to the posts here to find the default locations of files and folders in MyEclipse installations.

The posts are arranged by operating system type, for installations of MyEclipse products at the release level of 2013 and later. For earlier releases (10.x and earlier) please refer to the last post in this topic.

Mac OS X

This information was written from an installation of MyEclipse 2013 Professional edition on a Mac system with Mountain Lion operating system installed (OS X 10.8.4).

The default location for the installation is "/Applications/MyEclipse Professional", if you changed this at installation time, please adjust this information appropriately. For other MyEclipse editions, the application folder might have a different default name.

Within that installation folder, you will find a drop-ins folder which can be used as a standard eclipse drop-ins folder for installing some plug-ins. There is also an uninstall application - double-click to uninstall MyEclipse. The main item in the folder is the "MyEclipse Professional" application.

A Mac application is not simply an executable file. An application can be made up of many files and folders. To see the contents of the application, right click on the entry ("MyEclipse Professional") and select "Show Package Contents". This will show a folder "Contents". Open this folder to see various subfolders, defined by the OS, one of which is "Profile". Open the "Profile" folder to see the main components of the installation. These include the myeclipse application, which is an embedded Mac application, not the actual executable. To see the executable, again right click on the application ("myeclipse") and select "Show Package Contents". This time you will see some more OS defined folders, including "MacOS", open this folder to see the actual executable, myeclipse, and the configuration file, "myeclipse.ini". Note that there may also be an "eclipse.ini" file. If so, it should be ignored as it is not used.

There are also some files in the user's home folder. These contain metadata about the installation and configuration and do not normally need to concern the user. However, a couple of files are worth noting. The ".myeclipse.properties" file contains the licence and activation information. The ".deliverycenter.installs" file contains the installation location of the MyEclipse editions that have been installed. The installation location recorded is the "Profile" folder mentioned above.

Note that the full default OS path to the folder containing the "myeclipse" executable and the "myeclipse.ini" file is: "/Applications/MyEclipse Professional/MyEclipse Professional.app/Contents/Profile/myeclipse.app/Contents/MacOS".

Windows 7 and Windows Vista

The default <MyEclipse install folder>, for the Professional edition, is C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\MyEclipse Professional. This will contain the MyEclipse executable and all eclipse and MyEclipse plug-ins, with related folders.

Some other files and folders will be created in default locations (though some can't be changed).

The .myeclipse folder, the .myeclipse.properties file and the .deliverycenter.installs file will all be in C:\Users\<user name>. The myeclipse.ini file will be in <MyEclipse install folder>.

Workspaces, by default, are in C:\Users\<user name>\Workspaces and, for the MyEclipse Professional edition, the default workspace sub-folder will be MyEclipse Professional.

Some other files and folders will be created in default locations (though some can be changed).

The .myeclipse folder, the .myeclipse.properties file and the .deliverycenter.installs file will all be in /home/<user name>. The myeclipse.ini file will be in <MyEclipse install folder>.

Default Locations for MyEclipse Installations (Release 10 and earlier)

Read on, if you want to know where to look for MyEclipse related directories and files in releases prior to 2013. For later releases, see earlier posts in this topic.

This post assumes that you've accepted the default locations when installing Pulse and/or MyEclipse, in three different installation scenarios: installing from a separate offline or online installer (without Pulse having been installed), installing through Pulse, and installing from a separate installer but with Pulse already installed. There are other possibilities, installing using an update site from a classic eclipse install or installing using the Secure Delivery Center product; those cases aren't covered here though, in those cases, the installation folder structure ends up being not much different from a base eclipse install.

The string, "<user name>" refers to the ID that is used to log into the system. The string " <install base>" refers to the directory or folder under which the components of pulse and/or MyEclipse are installed. The string "<MyEclipse install folder>" refers to the folder from which MyEclipse is executed.

The final name of the <MyEclipse install folder> depends on the edition of MyEclipse that you install. For the sake of simplicity, the example "MyEclipse 9" is used here.

Some files may have a slightly different name, depending on the edition of MyEclipse that you install. For example, with MyEclipse for Spring, instead of myeclipse.ini, you will see myeclipseforspring.ini.

Windows 7 and Windows Vista

If Pulse is not installed and MyEclipse is installed using a separate installer, the <install base> will be C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\MyEclipse, which will contain a Common sub-folder and the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>\MyEclipse 9.

Installing Pulse, with the defaults, will create an <install base> of C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Genuitec. Pulse, itself, will be installed in a sub-folder of Pulse Explorer and a sub-folder of Common is created to hold MyEclipse common code.

If Pulse is used to then install MyEclipse, the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>\Profiles\MyEclipse 9.

If, after installing Pulse, a separate installer is used to install MyEclipse outside of Pulse, the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>\MyEclipse 9.

Some other files and folders will be created in default locations (though some can't be changed).
The .myeclipse folder, the .myeclipse.properties file and the .pulse2.locator file will all be in C:\Users\<user name>. The myeclipse.ini file will be in <MyEclipse install folder>.

Workspaces, by default, are in C:\Users\<user name>\Workspaces and, for MyEclipse 9, the default workspace sub-folder will be MyEclipse 9.


Windows XP

If Pulse is not installed and MyEclipse is installed using a separate installer, the <install base> will be C:\Program Files\MyEclipse, which will contain a Common sub-folder and the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>\MyEclipse 9.

Installing Pulse, with the defaults, will create an <install base> of C:\Program Files\Genuitec. Pulse, itself, will be installed in a sub-folder of Pulse Explorer and a sub-folder of Common is created to hold MyEclipse common code.

If Pulse is used to then install MyEclipse, the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>\Profiles\MyEclipse 9.

If, after installing Pulse, a separate installer is used to install MyEclipse outside of Pulse, the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>\MyEclipse 9.

Some other files and folders will be created in default locations (though some can't be changed).
The .myeclipse folder, the .myeclipse.properties file and the .pulse2.locator file will all be in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>. The myeclipse.ini file will be in <MyEclipse install folder>.

Workspaces, by default, are in C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Workspaces and, for MyEclipse 9, the default workspace sub-folder will be MyEclipse 9.


Linux

If Pulse is not installed and MyEclipse is installed using a separate installer, the <install base> will be /home/<user name>/MyEclipse, which will contain a Common sub-folder and the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>/MyEclipse 9.

Installing Pulse, with the defaults, will create an <install base> of /home/<user name>/Genuitec. Pulse, itself, will be installed in a sub-folder of Pulse Explorer and a sub-folder of Common is created to hold MyEclipse common code.

If Pulse is used to then install MyEclipse, the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>/Profiles/MyEclipse 9.

If, after installing Pulse, a separate installer is used to install MyEclipse outside of Pulse, the <MyEclipse install folder> will be <install base>/MyEclipse 9.

Some other files and folders will be created in default locations (though some can't be changed).
The .myeclipse folder, the .myeclipse.properties file and the .pulse2.locator file will all be in /home/<user name>. The myeclipse.ini file will be in <MyEclipse install folder>.

Workspaces, by default, are in /home/<user name>/Workspaces and, for MyEclipse 9, the default workspace sub-folder will be MyEclipse 9.


Mac OS X

If Pulse is not installed and MyEclipse is installed using a separate installer, the <install base> will be /Applications/MyEclipse, which will contain a Common sub-folder and the <MyEclipse install folder>, an application, will be <install base>/MyEclipse 9.

Installing Pulse, with the defaults, will create an <install base> of /Applications/Genuitec. Pulse, itself, will be installed in an application of Pulse Explorer and a sub-folder of Common is created to hold MyEclipse common code.

If MyEclipse is then installed either through Pulse or using a separate installer, the <MyEclipse install folder>, an application, will be <install base>/MyEclipse 9.

Some other files and folders will be created in default locations (though some can't be changed).
The .myeclipse folder, the .myeclipse.properties file and the .pulse2.locator file will all be in /Users/<user name>. The myeclipse.ini file will be in <install base>/MyEclipse 9.app/Contents/Profile/myeclipse.app/Contents/MacOS. Note that when using Finder to locate the files (as opposed to a terminal, for example), the "MyEclipse 9.app" folder will appear as just "MyEclipse 9", if extensions are hidden. Also, Finder will recognize the folder as an application, so double-clicking will just start the application; you have to right click on the folder and select "Show Package Contents" and also for the myeclipse.app folder in the path.

Workspaces, by default, are in /Users/<user name>/Workspaces and, for MyEclipse 9, the default workspace sub-folder will be MyEclipse 9.
