I am using git with Eclipse. I make a new workspace for each Jira story I am using on.
I also made a template workspace with Java set up, location of Chrome driver, etc.
One project I have to keep checking out, takes a long time and rarely changes is “resources”.
So in my template, I checked out “resources” onto my F: window drive. This template workspace is called AAWorkspace. When I get a new Jira project (Say ATEST-1234) I copy the entire AAresources to ATEST1234 and use that as the work space. Then ATEST1234 does not need to check out resources as it is in a common location with other projects (though it may need pulling sometimes).
I have a workspace (prod) that is older which I am still using. It was before “resources” was created so it does not have it. My old location there for chrome driver became outdated. I would like to use the common one on the F drive but not sure how. If in my workspace (prod) I check out resources to that path it will overwrite what is there which I am not sure I want. Is there a way to incoprorate my new resources into my old prod workspace?
