I have installed myEclipse6 and jdk 1.4.2(not sure whether its beta-version)
when i start myEclipse, it works for sometime and suddenly shuts down with
"JVM TERMINATED with Exit Code=1 and shows some parameters".I have searched and found some suggesions:-
1) my jdk my be a beta version which may be the problem.kindly tell me how to check? and how to download a full version.
2) I have to upgrade to jdk5 which i do not want.
3) my RAM is low 256mb sdram. Motherboard 845glly.processor-p4 1.7ghz.OS-win/xp.

kindly tell me how to proceed.

My guess? You need more memory. 256MB is hardly enough to run XP (my XP box uses almost 500MB just to start up), much less run myEclipse.

1) To check your JDK, enter:

java -version

or enter:

%JAVA_HOME%\bin\java -version

2) Why do you not want to upgrade to JDK 5?

Note that it's possible to install multiple versions of Java on a computer; you can install Java 1.4.2 as well as Java 5.

If you're developing software that has to run on Java 1.4.2, then you can set your project in Eclipse to Java 1.4.

Do you want me to send the error log files. If yes, how should i sent? Because I am currently working on jdk 1.4.2 , I want to run myEclipse with that.

When you get a "JVM TERMINATED with Exit Code=1" and an OS (not Java) stack trace, consider it as a bug in the JVM. There's nothing you can really do about that except work around it (if you can) or try a different JVM version.

Fortunately, few JVM-crashing bugs carry forward from one release to another, so simply running under a different minor release version is usually enough to make the problem go away.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
I agree. Here's the link:
