I am sure most Eclipse users have run into some "funny" (as in, this milk tastes funny, not funny haha) issues from time to time, namely:
Extremely slow start up times.
Unable to open any editor.
A resource already exists on disk when building.
These will probably be more of an issue for users that install a large amount of plugins or products like MyEclipseIDE.
I was having some of the issues I mentioned above, went searching for a bit and found and Eclipse option:
It looks like this tells Eclipse to erase and rebuild it's internal plugin cache which in turn sorts out some versioning / state issues. You only need to run it once so the option can be removed after the workspace restart.
So for MyEclipseIDE I added it to myeclipse.ini just before the -vm option.
Closed and opened Eclipse... and both issues were solved. /cheer
If you are just using standard Eclipse, you can place it in your eclipse.ini
