Hi i am trying to use the jrockit jvm for my eclipse. The documentations tells me that i have to point to javaw as the jvm in the eclipse.ini file. I have installed jrockit-jdk1.6.0_33-R28.2.4-4.1.0 and jrockit-jdk1.6.0_37-R28.2.5-4.1.0 on my oracle linux 5u7 64bit installation but there is no javaw in the bin directory of the jrockit installation.
Both jdks are 64bit, i have tested it with java -version .
Any idea what is going wrong?
This javaw.exe is used to for Java Web start.
If you clearly see in the doc to use use -vm option as javaw under jre/bin folder.
If you dont find them you can use java.exe .
This reference is only for JVM option to use for IDE.
So we can check for the why this javaw.exe is not exists through Oracle support mean while you can use java.exe to run your IDE.
Hope if answers your query.
Commonly used launchers for linux is java and that for windows are java or javaw.
It is not mandatory to specify java location in eclipse.ini. Specify the jrockit/bin path in PATH and start the eclipse, it will pick up the jrockit as launcher.
