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.

#14: Frank Vanderham (twelveeighty) (2010-12-09 05:12:13)
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?
