Today Eclipse crashed and now I can't restart it. I even tried starting
it with the -clean option and I sill get the same error. Here is what I
see at the end of the .log file after trying to start eclipse. How do I
recover from this?

Did the solution given here:
http://www.myeclipseide.com/PNphpBB2-printview-t-16692-start -0.html
Help you?

I quote
"The workaround for him was to restart using the -data command line argument to specify a new workspace, like:
eclipse.exe -data c:\testworkspace <REST OF ARGS>

after starting up, he disabled the Perforce plugin from the Help > Software Updates > Manage Config menu, and restarted and it was fine."

By the way I ran into this when I deleted the maven 2.x folder from my hard-drive because I had installed maven 3.x, this meant that I should have updated the MAVEN_HOME system variable also but I had not done that. Fixing MAVEN_HOME allowed eclipse to finally start up.

I had this exact same problem.

The instructions here pretty much solved my problem. I first tried -clean but it did not help. Then I followed the -data suggestion above which got Eclipse started.

I *looked* at the plug-in list next but the plug-in mentioned above wasn't there. I closed the window, exited Eclipse, and removed the -data parameter. When I started Eclipse it worked with my original workspace. It seems that temporarily using the -data parameter might be enough to overcome this problem, or perhaps looking at the plug-in list helped too.

When Eclipse ran successfully this last time, this message appeared in the log. I assume it is relevant:

!MESSAGE The workspace exited with unsaved changes in the previous session; refreshing workspace to recover changes.


And this was the original error:
