so i didnt use my Eclipse for a while, but made an update recently to 2020-09. Suddenly my Gradle projects stopped building. After an hour of trying things i saw that two new lines have appeared inside my eclipse.ini:
So apparently, Eclipse Installer did this. And probably broke a bunch of Gradle projects worldwide, because Gradle Plugin has problems running on Java 14 (and Gradle Plugin itself always runs on Eclipses JRE). So I have always been very careful to run Eclipse on my specific JRE version 11 that works with Gradle.
So i have two questions:
1) How do i stop Eclipse Installer from ever touching my VM again? Is this possible? I dont see an option to change the VM anywhere in the Eclipse Installer UI, so i guess i just delete the lines and hope for the best?
2) After deleting the lines from eclipse.ini, how do i remove the vm? Just delete the folder from /plugins folder? Might it come back?
I understand why installing a JRE without asking might be a good idea for new installs, but for the love of god it should not change existing installs without asking.
