Hello,

I would like to use windows environment variables values as parameters
in the eclipse.ini. E.g. JAVA_HOME with the path to the JDK for "-vm
%JAVA_HOME%\bin\javaw.exe"

I tried the above, but it does not work. Is there an other way how I can
solve this?

regards,
Lars

I don't believe so, since I couldn't find it documented anywhere, and
tried a few tests myself.

But just in case you are asking "how do I get the VM at JAVA_HOME used,
then that part should be automatically found by the launcher.

JAVA_HOME is only one exmple for a configuration parameter.

I would like to define multiple settings which can differ on several
computers and prepare ONE eclipse installation deployed to this
computers to use the environment settings on startup. But it looks like
this is not possible.

Lars

You could write a shell script/batch file to get this to work. The vm
parameter can be specified on the command line. Create a script file which
calls eclipse with a command line parameter of -vm
"%JAVA_HOME%\bin\javaw.exe". Then use the script file to run eclipse.

Thank you for the hint. I use it now this way.
