You can use a desktop policy settings document to add or remove Eclipse preferences used by the Notes client.
You can set Eclipse preferences on an Expeditor-based client such as Notes, Expeditor, or Symphony. Eclipse preferences are name value pairs in the format of pluginID/preferenceID=preferenceValue. Using this technique, you to push an Eclipse preference name value pair to the user's local Eclipse preference store.
The Domino desktop policy settings document Custom Settings tab contains a Managed Settings option. The Managed Settings option enables you to specify Eclipse preferences using the pluginID/preferenceID=preferenceValue format.
Note Notes uses the managed settings provider com.ibm.notes.managedsettings.provider to interact with Domino policy using the dynamic configuration (DynConfig) construct; which checks policy when Notes starts a session with its home mail server. The client message "Notes Configuration Settings refreshed" indicates that the DynConfig process has applied and updated user policies. Notes also uses the Portal managed settings provider, but because the Notes managed settings provider has highest priority, Domino policy takes precedence.
The user's local Eclipse preference store is updated when policy refresh occurs.
Do the following to push an Eclipse preference value pair to a Notes user.
1. Using the Notes or Administrator client, open the Domino Directory (names.nsf) on the Domino server.
2. Click the People & Groups tab, and open the Settings view.
3. Click Add Settings, open the Desktop Settings tab, and click the Custom Settings tab.
4. Click Managed Settings.
5. Click Edit List to open a panel that enables you to add the Eclipse pluginID/preferenceID=preferenceValue value pair(s).
6. Click Item and enter the preferenceID used by the plugin.
7. Click Value, enter the value to assign to the preferenceID. The Value entry equates to the preferenceValue.
8. Click Plug-in name and specify the plug-in to be deployed to the Notes client using either a widget deployment method, Notes install kit, or Eclipse add-on installer. The "Plug-in name" entry equates to the Eclipse pluginID.
9. Enable the Enforce option to push the value pair to overwrite any other previously set value for the setting.
10. Click Add/Modify Value.
Note To remove a known name/value pair, specify the applicable name pair in the Item and Value fields and click Remove.
Note The "Add these managed settings to user's desktops" section of the panel displays values in a different syntax (preferenceName=prefValue; pluginID), than the Eclipse standard (pluginID/preferenceID=preferenceValue).
11. Click OK and then click Save & Close.
What the heck would be the Eclipse PluginID/PreferenceID=preferenceValue
And then the plug-in to be deployed?
