Hello Everyone,

Please note I'm using Centos 5, 64 bit system with myeclipse 6.6

If you are constantly experiencing myeclipse crashes, permgen out of memory errors etc. , or basically just a really, really unstable development environment on 64 bit operating systems for myeclipse. Then maybe it could be the jvm you have running on your machine.

I was using Sun's 64 bit 1.6.0.0.7 jdk on my centos system but I was often frustrated by how often bizaare behaviour would show up on my myeclipse environment (opening certain views would crash the system, permgen errors). So I looked online to see if other have experienced this issue and it looks like they did. One person posted online that the best way to fix this was to stop using Sun's 64 bit JVM and instead use IBM's .

So I followed their advice and downloaded the 64 bit jvm from IBM and so far myeclipse is far more stable and faster, and I've stopped experiencing the permgen memory errors every hour. I strongly suggest that if your using Sun's jvm and are experiencing the issues described above that you instead use IBM's jvm.

nmatrix9,

Very interesting find, which base 64-bit build of Eclipse are you using with MyEclipse?

Note that I would like to make the following disclaimers about this setup:
* We don't have an official 64-bit build of MyEclipse yet
* We don't test ontop of 64-bit builds of Eclipse
* We don't test with the IBM VM

So none of that is officially supported and we aren't aware of any side effects of using it *but*, that being said, if you run into hickups you can still ask for help and we'll do our best to help you work around them.

I'm going to make this post sticky, because if you were running into this issue, that means others might be as well and we don't want them stuck on a flaky platform either. Thanks for taking the time to sum this all up for everyone nmatrix.

I was just wondering if you knew whether this issue extends to J2EE applications that have been deployed on CentOS 5 machines using that JVM.

Robert,

None of the MyEclipse 64-bit issues should effect any app dev you do, client or server. Your projects exist in a sandbox in their project in the IDE and certainly once deployed. So you shouldn't have any problems.
