Description
In JBuilder previous versions, all project/workspace files were saved with relative path content.
In the JBuilder 2007 (Eclipse based) version ALL project, workbench, libraries elements are using ONLY the absolute path convention.
In some cases, such as libraries, the IDE imposes the use of absolute paths.
The absolute paths issue causes problems and adds unnecessary complexity to our source control management (ClearCase).
I heard about all the suggestions to use either drive mapping or environment variables for each user but the simplest way may be to use relative paths.
