subject: Re: [EGL-i] RBD install breaks MyEclipse
I'd have to run the installer again and I don't have the DVD with me at
the moment. But, there is an option to install "stand alone" or "all in
one" where it installs an eclipse instance AND the J9 JVM (which adds
some capabilities) - I am sorry I can't remember the option name or have
a screen shot. I looked at the online documentation but it isn't much
help. The bottom line is that you can install RBD to use an existing
eclipse installation OR have RBD install an eclipse instance as part of
the install. I started with the former and then backed up and took the
latter. That instance is located here: "C:\Program
Files\IBM\SDP\eclipse.exe". It looks like the installer changed up the
eclipse.ini in C:\eclipse\ to be RBD specific before I "backed up". I
posted in the MyEclipse forum to see if someone had a "vanilla"
eclipse.ini I could look at so that I could at least start MyEclipse
again. I am close to getting it running again.
At minimum, you'd think RBD would make a backup copy of the eclipse.ini
file before it changed it. Maybe it did and I just can't find it....
