Eclipse in 2017
satya - 1/18/2018, 6:35:28 PM
I used to like when eclipse didn't need an installation to run
Save and restore of old directories when I have upgraded my laptop OS no longer works.
there seem to be some crap saved under windows/users directory that gets blown out and eclipse need reinstall :(
Anyway I have switched to the latest release, that appears to be dated on Dec 2017.
Right off the bat there was confusion about should I install for Java EE or the standard Java. If I need Java EE later, will it be 2 different installs? Not sure.

This command is still useful in setting up the VM
i:\Eclipse.exe -vm i:\jdk142\bin\javaw.exe -data d:\my-Eclipse-workspace

Here are some old notes on setting up eclipse

I was able to keep the JDK 1.8 file structure
Means I did not reinstall JDK
New eclipse install asked where the JDK is during the installation. This prompt will resolve to the java\bin\javaw.exe
