Hi,

I see the following error while launching the Oomph installer. I downloaded the Windows 64 bit version from here - http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Oomph_Installer. Any idea what might be wrong here ?

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: java.lang.System.lineSeparator()Ljava/lang/String;
at org.eclipse.oomph.base.impl.BaseFactoryImpl.<clinit>(BaseFactoryImpl.java:245)
at org.eclipse.oomph.base.BaseFactory.<clinit>(BaseFactory.java:32)

Neeraj,

It sounds like it's not finding an appropriate version of the JRE. You
could direct it to use a specific one with a -vm option which you could
add to the setup-eclipses.ini. See
http://help.eclipse.org/kepler/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.platform.doc.user%2Ftasks%2Frunning_eclipse.htm
for details about such arguments.

Is it the case that java.lang.System.lineSeparator() is introduced in Java7 - because the eclipse.ini of the installer just requires Java6.

Alex,

Yes, we committed a fix for that, i.e.,
https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=436084. We will promote a
new build. Oddly this method is added to 1.7 yet there's no @since 1.7
in its Javadoc! Go figure...

I've just promoted build #68, which replaces build #52 and fixes several fundamental bugs. IIRC., the self update of the
installer still doesn't work correctly, so please download and unzip a new version of the installer.
