eclipse.ini JVM setting keeps getting removed. [message #1729037] Sat, 09 April 2016 20:45 Go to next message

If specifying the JVM in the eclipse.ini file is a best practice, as suggested in this(https://www.eclipse.org/forums/index.php/m/1317077/?srch=eclipse.ini+default#msg_1317077) forum thread, why does my JVM setting (-vm C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jdk1.8.0_73\bin\javaw.exe) in the eclipse.ini file get removed with each update/install using the Help -> Install new software feature method.

The jvm is the only setting that is being added/changed in the eclipse.ini file. So I can not tell if the JVM setting is getting removed or the whole .ini file is being replaced with the default.

I'm kind of doubtful that can be a general problem, otherwise a great
many people would find their IDE just stops running after each update.
What exactly does your *.ini look like? Do you have it across two
separate lines? And best confirm this theory about the whole file being
replaced verses just that one option being removed; neither of which
can be generally the case, or I'd be losing a lot of settings all the
time... An update can definitely update the *.ini, so if there's
something a little wrong with the structure, that might lead to problems
with correct update.

The above line must be split into two lines:

-vm
C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jdk1.8.0_73\bin\javaw.exe

Cheers

I am confused. It is split into two lines. Just as a double check I went back and looked at the original file. And it is split into two lines. I have embedded a screen capture as proof.

Paul,

Try adding it earlier in the file. Also, the fact that Thunderbird
shows you post as a single lined suggests that you have perhaps a
mixture of different line endings. Use an editor that can show the
control characters and check that you don't have a mixture of line
ending conventions. Then add something else to the file, e.g., some -D
option (-Dorg.example.test=true) and see if that's preserved or not
during updates.

In the end, if there is a problem, you will need to describe a set of
steps that anyone can follow that will reproduce the problem. As I
said, a problem as serious as what you suggest is highly unlikely to go
unnoticed for long...

Just the -vm lines are removed. The "-Dorg.example.test=true" stays.
