I do have net beans IDE , SInce i do have weblogic 8.1 , orcale 8i , in my systems . It takes so much of time ... i tired to configure eclipse but in vain i am getting error like "workspace already in use ". So Pls suugest the IDE which will consume less memory space that too haveing some nice features and free download too Thanks in advance
"Workspace in use" from Eclipse most commonly comes from one of 2 things:
1. The workspace is, in fact already in use by another copy of Eclipse
2. The metadata containing the workspace lock is out of sync. The only cure for this I know of is to go into the workspace directory and delete the entire .metadata folder.
If you really need something lighter on memory, pretty much all the major Java IDEs are CPU and memory pigs. I have a 200MHz/98MB machine that occasionally I do work on, and there's no way any of those will run there (for one thing, there's not even enough RAM to run X Windows). On that machine I quite happily use Emacs with the JDE plugin. Not as slick as the GUI IDE's, but decent for Java development considering the limitations of the platform.
Rumor has it that the vi editor has something similar, but I've never seen it.
An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
The directory Tim is referring to is called ".metadata", and it's at the same level as your project directories. That is, in my workspace, I have a project called "thp-v2", so in my project directory, I see:
I think Tim was referring to this .metadata directory. So, delete it (or move it to a different directory) and see if that helps.
Hi friends in side "eclipse" directory i dont have any directory called "metadata ". As tim said metadata folder may store some data releated sto my projects ,since i cant able to even see the console(GUI), so i guess there is no chance of creating the "metadata" folder. Pls suggest.. Thanks

Your workspace directory is not your Eclipse directory. The workspace directory is the default directory in which your project files are stored.
If you click "OK" to the message "Workspace in use, try a different one", you'l get a window, which tells you where your workspace directory is. You can then look for the .metadata directory there. Note that the directory is called '.metadata' (in particular, it has a a leading '.').
I considered posting screenshots, but I think you should really do a little legwork yourself. Have you actually searched for these problems, or are you hoping to be spoonfed answers?
