Eclipse on .NET

I got Eclipse to run. Lot's of stuff still doesn't work, but CVS browsing and Java file editing works. Startup is very slow (a couple of minutes), but once the classes are loaded performance is OK.

Screenshot. Exception log.


  • Download the ikvm.net binaries
  • Install Eclipse
  • cd \eclipse
  • \ikvm\bin\ikvm -Djava.version=1.3 -cp startup.jar -Xbootclasspath:plugins\org.apache.xerces_4.0.7\xercesImpl.jar;plugins\org.apache.xerces_4.0.7\xmlParserAPIs.jar org.eclipse.core.launcher.Main -os win32 -ws win32 -arch x86 -install file:C:/eclipse/
  • Ignore the "System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path "d:\eclipse" is denied." exceptions

Updated the binaries and source snaphots.

Have you tried the java.util.zip.ZipFile speedup patch?
It made a huge difference in startup time for gij.

I apologize for the lameness of this, but the comment spam was driving me nuts. In order to be able to post a comment, you need to answer a simple question. Hopefully this question is easy enough not to annoy serious commenters, but hard enough to keep the spammers away.

Anti-Spam Question: What method on java.lang.System returns an object's original hashcode (i.e. the one that would be returned by java.lang.Object.hashCode() if it wasn't overridden)? (case is significant)
