I have a bunch of java projects that I like to work on when I have some free time. Only issue is that this “free time” is from different locations, different computers and different Operating Systems. And since I don’t have a lot of “free time”, its hard for me to setup svn, builds etc. I needed a quicker solution: Dropbox

Of course this wont work out of the box. The trick is to make the eclipse projects self contained. In other words, they must not reference any libs/jars/resources outside their own directory. Most self respecting eclipse users would know how to do this. Then the entire project can be synced with Dropbox.

As my project folders will be synced to anywhere I install Dropbox. All I need is a working eclipse and i can start coding. Yay!
