Eclipse software install error

I recently had the need to use Eclipse. I am not a fan and when I got this error while trying to install Eclipse plugin:
“Comparison method violates its general contract!”
my opinion was cemented.

The workaround is to use an old version of java like this:

eclipse -vm /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_45/bin/java

And the plugins, well they did not do much for me either.


  1. It's a great job that has been accomplished.
