Ultratoto14 asks (in the comments):
I tried to launch eclipse M8 and M9 with the latest binaries. It does not run.
I saw that the on april 15 you successfully started it.
Is there something special to do or is the latest bin cannot be used ?
Thanks in advance.
M8 runs, but M9 doesn't. For M8 to run, you do need to add the xalan and xerces jars to the bootclasspath (wrapped for readability):
eclipse -vm c:\ikvm\bin\ikvm.exe
Note that this is on Windows. I haven't tried running Eclipse on Mono/Linux.
