Eclipse .classpath in SVN: JRE collision

I’m about to commit Eclipse .classpath and .project into SVN, following the good advice I got here on SO.

The problem is that some JRE definitions are unique to a developer’s machine, e.g.:

<classpathentry kind="con" path="..JRE_CONTAINER/org..../Jeffs JRE"/>

If this line is committed, it fails on other machines that don’t have Jeffs JRE.

Any idea for a workaround? Could the JRE definitions be shared as well?

    I never saw adding specific IDE configuration files as a good practice, but that’s a different issue.

    If you want to follow that path, you should use the variables.

    Java Build Path > Add variable

    Then you need to make sure that every single developer has those variables defined, everyone with their own paths.

    (or use Maven to avoid these problems)

    In project properties > Java Build Path > Libraries > Double click on you JRE and then choose: Use Execution Environments instead of Alternate JRE or Workspace default JRE. You .classpath entry will be then something like this:

    <classpathentry kind="con" path="org.eclipse.jdt.launching.JRE_CONTAINER/org.eclipse.jdt.internal.debug.ui.launcher.StandardVMType/JavaSE-1.6"/>
