Start Eclipse without Native Launcher

To start Eclipse 3.3 and later without native launcher use command like next:
java -jar plugins\org.eclipse.equinox.launcher_1.0.101.R34x_v20080819.jar -showsplash org.eclipse.platform --launcher.XXMaxPermSize 392M -framework plugins\org.eclipse.osgi_3.4.2.R34x_v20080826-1230.jar -vmargs -Dosgi.requiredJavaVersion=1.5 -Xms128m -Xmx1024m
  • It could help to use specific JDK (for example, use x32 JVM on x64 platform)
  • Example above is for Eclipse 3.4.1 (eclipse-jee-ganymede-SR1)
  • Options are copied from eclipse.ini
  • For other Eclipse version change plugins' jar file names
