Just a short note about an error I resolved lately.
Eclipse Initializing Java Tooling hangs at 1% while eclipse uses a lot of resources while configuring org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.internal.web.container … I’m on Windows 7, 64bit, 64bit JDK, running as non-admin.
This error seems to have some connection to the installed plugins, or with the last exit of eclipse. I found a forum entry “on the internets” where one user said he just deleted the lock file in his workspace’s metadata folder. This didn’t work for me. Another user mentioned that you can delete or rename the folder to resolve the issue:
This worked for me, eclipse starts back on error-free again – BUT when closing eclipse, another error appears, that says that metadata in this folder could not be saved (something to do with the servers). Starting back up again after this gives me the same error again, Java Tooling hanging at 1%
Well, never mind. Its a bunch of plugins in one giant IDE-framework. Can’t work on a 64bit Win7, right?
