43.17 Mapping Linux to Windows (/proj/ to Z:\proj\)

Linux directories can be mapped to Windows drives, allowing editing files from Windows. For example /home/simi is mapped to Z:\. This has an impact on paths configured for a DVT project, for example INCDIRs etc. The paths are set using Linux conventions, however Eclipse runs in Windows and the DVT builder needs to know about the mapping in order to compile the files.

To specify the mapping, set the system variable %DVT_CROSSPLATFORM_MAP% before invoking Eclipse. You can add multiple mappings separated by ";" e.g.:

/projects/=p:\;/home/lars/=Z:\lars\

NOTE: Please do not put any mapping of type /=\, we are handling this automatically.
