Hi,

Probably a stupid question, but I have turned off automatic updates and Eclipse still installs various plugins that I do not want/need behind my back. How do I prevent this from happening?

Eclipse version is 2020-06 (4.16.0)

Thanks,

Jozef

I was referring to the Marketplace plugins.

Installing certain plugins automatically installs other plugins, which is normal. For example, installing the Bash Editor 2.8.0 plugin also installs the TM Terminal 9.11 plugin.

However, some plugins are not related to any installs. For example, I came in one morning and discovered Eclipse had installed the Buildship Gradle Integration 3.0 and and Wild Web Developer plugins.

Both buildship and wild web are part of several of the products/packages, including the Java and JEE IDEs. Is that what you have installed? Did you uninstall these and they came back? Which product exactly did you install? (See the description in Help -> About Eclipse IDE to answer that question.)

Help -> About Eclipse IDE says:
Eclipse IDE for Enterprise Java Developers (includes Incubating components)
Version: 2020-06 (4.16.0)
Build id: 20200615-1200

The reason I posted this question is that I'm seeing an error reported by one of the plugins that requires Java 11 to be installed. We are running Java 8 still, and cannot update any plugins to Java 11, which is why automatic updates is turned off.
Is there a way to determine which plugin is reporting this error? I attached it here.

Well, org.eclipse.wst.wsdl.validation only required Java 11 as of 2021-03, so you have a mix of feature versions
installed somehow.

The Error Log view will show which plugin fail to start because they need Java 11. This information is stored in <workspace>/.metadata/.log.
