I've reverted changes that allowed multiple versions of Eclipse to be installed alongside eachother to investigate a less buggy method of allowing that.

TemplarGR: Ah, forgot to update the sums. I'll do that shortly.

Also, integrity checks fail.

Seriously though why drop eclipse to AUR? It has always been included in all distros i have tried and it was always in arch as well. Weird. Something changed with upstream?

I can't believe eclipse has been dropped to AUR.

Anyway, PKGBUILD now requires some changes, because the use scenario has changed. Previously, it would just download all the eclipse-* files and build them into separate packages. It made sense since it was running on Arch build servers.

But now, it doesn't make sense to download everything. The PKGBUILD should download just those eclipse-* that the user actually wants to build.

@simona Thanks for reporting. The package has been updated again to resolve the initial errors. We'll fix these asap!

Here's the solution for the execution errors :

Step 1 - Take a backup of all projects in your home folder

Step 2 - Uninstall all# packages of eclipse installed from arch official repositories and AUR

Step 3 - Install eclipse-common using your AUR helper. I used yay. Select All for packages to cleanbuild (Or equivalent option in your helper)

Step 4 - Install eclipse-(Your Required Programming Language) package. cleanbuild- All just like Step 3 for it as well

Step 5 - You can install a second package for a different language after this. Or install it together in step 4 itself. This is the main reason the package was moved here as the new maintainer has modified it to make installing multiple elipse-(Your Required Language) packages with different languages possible from pacman

# Also try uninstalling the tarball and flatpak/snap of eclipse (if any) if these steps don't work for you, after Step 5. Then repeat all steps

Now you should be able to execute and use multiple eclipse instances with different languages. Do comment if you are still experiencing any errors. Thank You!

appadela: I've no idea why the downgrade. As far as I could research, a lot of packages were removed from the official repos to the AUR as orphans because of the usual spring cleanup including the complete set of Eclipse pkgs.

Also, these sources files do not exist in the server:

Sorry - but why all eclipse packages was downgraded from 2020-3 to 2019-12?

mjtullio commented on 2020-05-02 03:32

appadela: Sorry to bother you again. If it helps, I've noticed that the sources are for the release of 2019-12, the latest are from 2020-03 (eclipse-java-2020-03-R-linux-gtk-x86_64.tar.gz).

I've tried checking the PKGBUILD and it's sadly beyond my knowledge.

Cheers, Thanks for adopting these packages.
