I upgraded my OSX from Yosemite to High Sierra. But now Eclipse fails to start. It logs en aerror like "com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (org.eclipse.platform.ide.7216[39934]): Service exited due to signal: Segmentation fault: 11 sent by exc handler[0]"

Trying to run a newly downloaded installer gives the same problem. A big box with, among other things, an indication of a NULL-pointer:

Exception Type: EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV)
Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x0000000000000000
Exception Note: EXC_CORPSE_NOTIFY

Termination Signal: Segmentation fault: 11
Termination Reason: Namespace SIGNAL, Code 0xb
Terminating Process: exc handler [0]

I have no idea where to start looking at this. Any suggestions?

Your Java may have been replaced together with the upgrade.

Try downloading the current JDK 8 from Oracle Web site <http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jdk8-downloads-2133151.html>, setting it up and running the installer again.

Thanks, I'll try that.

Though it seems a bit strange. Running 'java -version' at the command line gives me 'java version "1.8.0_102"'. And running '/usr/libexec/java_home' gives me '/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.8.0_102.jdk/Contents/Home'.
On the other hand, I never really understood where Java is located on OS X. And a fresh install of IntelliJ failed to automatically locate any JDK's.

Installing Java 8 u161 didn't immediately help. But after adding
export JAVA_HOME=$(/usr/libexec/java_home)
to .bash_profile AND restarting, I now have a running Eclipse. Not sure if setting JAVA_HOME or restart did the trick, but at least I can get back to working.

Thanks!
