Hi,

This might not be the perfect channel for my question - if so please advise me kindly !

I have an eclipse RCP application in production on ~8000 computers.
It runs on Windows + jdk 32bits. It is based on a 4.6 version of eclipse.
It makes extensive use of the SWT browser component, and this seems to be the source for a large amount of JVM crashes.

I would like to debug the execution of the program but it is difficult because I cannot seem to find debug symbols files for the binaries (especially eclipse.exe, eclipse_XXXX.dll from org.eclipse.equinox.launcher.win32.win32.x86).

Is there a repository somewhere where I could find this symbol files ?

Thanks in advance !

This tutorial describes how one can set up an IDE that counts all the sources of everything in the platform SDK.

https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse_Platform_SDK_Provisioning

This will include all the Equinox Git repositories as well as SWT.

But note that support for 32 bit has been dropped so you'll have to look in the Git history for such things.

Thank you Ed, this definitely helps. I will try recompiling the right (old) version of the binaries with adding an option to generate the debug symbols.

I know but I have no choice - there are legacy 32bit DLLs I have to load in my application... so I'll have to do with it !
