its resolved.There's .state file in config folder of eclipse.Seems it got corrupted.(Reason:may be improper shutdown)So i replaced that entire config folder from my colleague ,and now rad is happy.

I think it would even have been save to simply delete the config folder - it's just some sort of cache, as far as I know.

Anyway, moving this to our IDE forum...
