Managing and sharing your eclipse configuration with Pulse

Pulse is a tool designed for development teams to share your eclipse configurations. You can create various profiles based on known eclipse builds and add your own plugins from the pulse catalog or an update site. You can even customize the launch arguments and the workspace settings. Once your eclipse profile is ready, you just have to run it and your eclipse installation will be ready in a few minutes with all your plugins and custom settings. Pulse provides a multithreaded download so the installation is quite fast.

Here's how to proceed :

1. You have to download and install the pulse application from the pulse website.

2. Create an account.

3. Choose your eclipse base bundle from the catalog.

4. Add your own eclipse plugins from the catalog or from an update site.

5. The last step is to run your profile.

Pulse will create an entry in your program files directory where you can find your new eclipse installation.

Using Pulse you can customize the launch arguments of your eclipse installation.

And save your eclipse workspace settings directly from your eclipse installation as shown in the screenshot above.
