It's the bundle.info of eclipse what I found in it's lib folder
Description of problem:
Just today I have installed it. Definitely it's not the fault of eclipse, I was greedy enough to install so many plugins. It did so well with PDT, git, web tools, and few development plugins. But after installing General Purpose Tools > Remote Service .. (I forgot what's next, sorry). It failed at start up.
Please help me how I can recover this installation.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
was there any error displayed? have you tried starting Eclipse from a console (what is displayed)? Could you find a .log file in your workspace/.metadata folder?
How were you installing all those plugins? Were you using yum? Or Eclipse Update Manager?

I have mailed the attached log file from .metadata of workspace folder. I don't know how to upload here.

.log file of eclipse workspace
it looks like you have selected another version of Eclipse on the top of your existing installation, which broke the configuration.
The only workaround is to remove the ~/.eclipse folder which undo all software installations and wipes majority of Eclipse settings.
I'm afraid I can't fix the general use case - it is how Eclipse was designed - certain updates can break Eclipse. There is some work done in Eclipse to fix this, but I'd not expect immediate results.
