Re: [cross-project-issues-dev] Who decided to override my Java installation with JustJ?


I don't think anyone has figured out why a JRE is automatically installed during update:

You can undo this effect just by removing the -vm argument (to end up with the default) or by changing the -vm argument to the one you want it to use, in your eclipse.ini.

It's liable to come back if there is an unexpected updated to the JRE in the future...

My Eclipse installation recently prompted me to upgrade (something new), so I accepted the advice. Now I’ve discovered that an unknown JRE was downloaded onto my machine and is being used to run Eclipse. This is broken on so many levels, I don’t even know where to start opening bug reports.

Since when does Eclipse start installing unauthorized versions of the JRE onto my machine without any notification, and that overrides my choice of the JRE (or JDK in my case) for running Eclipse? Not only is there no option to change or uninstall this, it breaks tools that rely on the JDK (e.g. Spring Boot Live hovers.)

Does anybody else see the problem here? Someone needs to rethink this kind of behavior.

In the mean time, does anyone know how to undo this mess, or am I forced to go back to 2020-06?
