Hello,

sorry for the post to several groups, but we are hitting the wall trying to
figure out why this exception is being thrown and thus preventing Eclipse
3.0 from starting up. Can anyone help?

We are trying to run Eclipse 3.0 on Solaris while connecting to it from
Windows XP pro using Reflection.
We are calling it with:

<eclipse_dir>$ ./eclipse -vm <java_1.4.2_dir>/bin/java -vmargs -Xm512M

The splash screen comes up, then there is a dialog box indicating that there
was an error and that the details have been saved into a log file in the
../configuration directory. Here is the contents of such file:
