I am receiving the following error message when trying to run a java application:

Exception occurred during launch
Source locator does not exist: org.eclipse.jdt.debug.ui.javaSourceLocator

I am not sure why suddendly Eclipse is looking for this. It has worked before until I installed JBuilder. Can anyone tell me why I have this problem? Is it because of JBuilder? How do I fix this problem?

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like it could be a classpath issue. Might be good to see if Eclipse is using the right source JAR file.

That said, I'm only guessing...

Hi Bob,

Also make sure you downloaded the version of Eclipse with the JDT included instead of just the work bench. It looks like you have only the workbench.

Good luck!
