Description Ben Konrath 2004-11-17 17:56:55 EST
Steps to Reproduce:

* make sure you only have the IBM jvm installed and it is listed as an 
  installed JRE
* import a java project from cvs

At this point Eclipse tries to compile the project but fails with this

The project was not built since its build path is incomplete. Cannot
find the class file for java.lang.Object. Fix the build path then try
building this project

To fix this, right click on the project -> Properties -> Java Build
Path -> Libraries tab -> Add External JARs ... -> select core.jar

I've seen this both on x386 and on ia64 with Java projects and plugin
Comment 1 Ben Konrath 2004-11-17 18:08:30 EST
Java packages installed on ia64: 

% rpm -qa | grep java-1.4.2
Comment 2 Ben Konrath 2004-11-22 13:04:23 EST
T've noticed that this happens for other jars in the JRE as well. The
attachments below show the JRE System Libraries for both RHDS and
eclipse from eclipse.org on the same machine with the same project.

Notice that the eclipse.org version has a more complete JRE System

Closing bug as we are no longer working on RHDS 2.0.
