posted under category: CFEclipse on June 15, 2007 by Nathan

If you're using Eclipse and are having plugin problems, be it you think you installed one and it isn't showing up, or you are having some kind of conflict, or an older version is coming back from the dead, there's one easy fix that will solve it most of the time.

Eclipse.exe -clean

That's all it takes. Eclipse will take a few extra seconds to start up as it cleans its plugin cache.

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
