Description Charles Butterfield 2012-01-11 12:34:52 EST
Description of problem:  Yesterday I did a routine yum update which updated my eclipse components (platform, swt, rcp, jdt) from 3.7.1-4 to 3.7.1-7.  This caused major breakage - lots of error messages at startup, missing perspectives (Java), loss,   I didn't capture all of the details at the time, but see steps to reproduce below.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 3.7.1-7

How reproducible: Totally

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum erase eclipse*
2. yum install eclipse-jdt
3. run eclipse
4. New Project does not have a Java project as an option
Actual results:
No "Java Project" support

Expected results:
Naturally we would expect "Java Project"

This situation occurs because we had to break a packaging loop by moving a plugin from eclipse-jdt to eclipse-platform. Unfortunately, without invasive, fragile workarounds, the only way to fix this is to stop Eclipse, mv ~/.eclipse{,.bak2011-12-21} and restart Eclipse. Some user preferences may be lost and plugins you manually installed (qt, it sounds like) will be gone but you should get the RPM-installed plugins back and you'll be able to re-install anything you previously installed from within Eclipse.

We apologize for this issue and are working on a more robust solution to ensure it never happens again.

Yes, nuking my .eclipse tree did the trick.
