Configuring Eclipse to Point to JVM [message #251544] Thu, 13 March 2008 15:48 Go to next message

Hi

I copied to JDK 1.6 and it downloaded to the default directory ie.
d:\jdk1.1.6\bin. (This should be the correct version although I do not
know why it points to 1.1.6).

I subsequently pasted all the files downloaded to :

D:\Documents and Settings\Michael Khoo\My
Documents\Unzipped\eclipse-java-europa-winter-win32\eclipse\ jre\bin

which is where Eclipse expects the java executable files, dll files etc.

But when I run Eclipse I got a runtime error from the JVM with
termination code = 1.

Is there a way to configure Eclipse to point to the original directory the
JDK was downloaded ie. d:\jdk1.1.6\bin? Or what is the problem? Is there
anything I need to do to configure Eclipse properly?

You should not copy files into the eclipse/jre directory; use
eclipse.ini instead. See this wiki page: http://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini

Hope this helps,
Eric

Hi Eric

I have amended my eclipse.ini file accordingly. I use the file from the
directory where my Eclipse has installed.

I still hit with the same error from the JVM module after executing with
terminated code = 1. My eclipse.ini contents are :

-showsplash
org.eclipse.platform
--launcher.XXMaxPermSize
256M
-vm
D:\jdk1.1.6\bin\javaw.exe
-vmargs
-Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.6
-Xms40m
-Xmx512m

Actually I am not sure whether the java I downloaded is it 1.6 or 1.1.6?
My friend told me it should be 1.6 and the web page seems to give the
showing that 1.1.6 is the naming convention by highlighting in yellow only
the 1.6?

Eric can you help?

Thanks.

Michael

Michael, it should be jdk1.6.0. If you go java -version at the cmd
prompt, it will tell you the version. If it's not 1.6, go to Sun and
download the JDK 6. JDK 6 is the same as 1.6 (don't ask me why the
versions are like this). Hope this helps. Mark

It's worth pointing out that if you point at the java dll, it means eclipse will run in-process with the eclipse.exe launcher rather than launching a seperate java process. This can be helpful to see clearly which one is eclipse in the process list.

-vm
D:/opt/jdk1.7.0_17/jre/bin/server/jvm.dll
