Hi. I tried search but couldn't get answer..

I downloaded Eclipse (eclipse-jee-juno-SR1-macosx-cocoa-x86_64) for Mac OS (Lion 10.7.5) but Eclipse won't start.
It shows a bouncing icon in the dock and when clicking on it simply disappears. No error, nothing.
I made sure that JVM path is set properly, no luck.

Interestingly enough I have JBoss Developer Studio that works fine. I tried other Eclipse assemblies which didn't work the same way.

I would greatly appreciate your help!

Best Regards

I have solved the problem. The solution appeared to be quite unexpected .
It was archive utility fault - sArchiver. It was default for tar archives and somehow extracted files were corrupted.
I removed the tool and used standard one and it all worked.

Also it helped me to run Eclipse from terminal to see the exact error message (shared library not found) so after making sure that all shared plugins were properly addressed in eclipse.ini it occurred that it was something wrong with binaries themselves.
