Please consider updating Eclipse to version 3.6 . The
currently bundled version
is 3.4, which is already one version behind.
The current plan is for Eclipse 3.6 to be released in June 2006 (
) which
would make it suitable for inclusion in OpenSUSE 11.3 (
This would also solve SWT's incompabitlities with GTK 2.18+ , reported
at .

Very good idea, I fully agree.

#3: Pavol Rusnak (prusnak) (2009-12-07 13:40:57)
Robert, Alex: I agree, go ahead and update it!

Which project should I base my work on from

#5: Pavol Rusnak (prusnak) (2009-12-09 02:23:49) (reply to #4)
osc meta pkg openSUSE:Factory eclipse | grep '<devel'
  <devel project="Java:packages" package="eclipse"/>
So it is Java:packages project.

I've managed to build Eclipse 3.5.1 , but packaging is something else.
What's the best place to take this discussion to?

#7: Pavol Rusnak (prusnak) (2009-12-10 14:35:16) (reply to #6)
opensuse-java mailing list seems to be the best place ...

#8: Pásztor János (pasja) (2010-01-27 13:47:21)
Yes, it is a very good idea. I use eclipse often, and it's a pain that
it not integrates to suse, if i download standalone. Example: i could
not start it with Krunner

#9: Roelof Wobben (snowman1967) (2010-10-31 21:58:56)
I agree also.
I like to work with c++ and python and it seems to be the only IDE who
can do this.

I'm curious: Is anybody from Novell interested in Eclipse on OS? Do you
seriously intend to ship OS 11.4 in 2011 with Eclipse 3.4 from 2008,
when Eclipse 3.7 is expected for 2011-06?

#12: Pavol Rusnak (prusnak) (2010-12-08 16:36:07) (reply to #11)
Read this blogpost -
. There is even a chance that Eclipse will be dropped completely.
Please, stop relying on Novell, openSUSE is a community project, if
noone from community is interested, then there is no Eclipse in OBS. It
is very simple ...

#13: Martin Schröder (oneiros) (2010-12-09 00:10:13) (reply to #12)
While you are right, OS is the base for SLES/SLED - so the question is
valid if Novell is interested in Java developers on Linux.

+ As we're voting on this - which Eclipse are we going for to be bundled
+ with the distro? For years now the distro version is NOT the Java EE
+ version and adding Java EE to it is next to impossible - you have to
+ uninstall the distro and install it separately, really.
+ I use Eclipse Java EE as a separate install without major problems, so
+ I'm neutral myself, but we should be clear on the scope: is it the
+ "base" Eclipse that we need to bundle, or a bigger package?
