Re: [pdt-dev] How to make PDT-Eclipse use Sun-JDK instead of GCJ

Don't do this. This step is for configuring the Eclipse environment to *build* Java applications. You need to configure the version of Java used to run Eclipse itself. This is an Ubuntu thing, not an Eclipse thing.

A little further down in the thread, the following steps are more useful:

another way to do this instead of making a link is

sudo update-alternatives --config java
sudo update-alternatives --config javac
sudo update-alternatives --config jar

this will give you a list of installed java
Choose sun java...
You can configure Eclipse to use a specific JRE when it runs (independent of what's installed/configured on Ubuntu); let us know if you want to try that.

As I have downloaded PDT-Eclipse it is not having the JAVA section under:

Windows > Preferences > Java > Installed JRE

Could someone share the URL which I can use under 'HELP' -> 'Software
updates' -> 'Available software' -> 'Add site' and installed the JAVA IDE
feature into PDT-Eclipse.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers,
Parag,

Hello All,

When I am starting the PDT - Eclipse, I am getting a dialog box
displaying
following message:

GCJ has been detected as the current Java virtual machine. Use of GCJ
is
untested and unsupported. Please consult the documentation for more
information.
However even by using GCJ, PDT-Eclipse is working as expected but still I
want o use Sun-JDK instead of GCJ.

Also Sun-JDK is installed on my Ubuntu 8.10. I just want to know the way
by
which I can switch between the two.

I guess un-installing GCJ is one of the option but I don't want to do
that.
Any other option?

Cheers,
Parag
