This might be a simple question but please help me.
I have been using eclipse, and suddenly 1 day back when I clicked on eclipse.exe for eclipse to open, the eclipse image appeared and suddenly vanished.
I tried different options 1.I shut down the system and tried again 2.I downloaded eclipse again and tried to run eclipse.exe
But none of them worked. I am not able to understand why this suddenly happened. Is there any other way to open eclipse IDE apart from eclipse.exe.
Try running Eclipse from the command line, including the -consoleLog option. That will print log output to the console; hopefully that will give you some clues as to what is wrong. (My guess is a JDK issue - have you changed that recently? Try installing the latest JDK and using that.)
Yes, your guess is right . Till now I have been using JDK1.5 and I downloaded JDK1.6 recently. But I did not change path and classpath variables. I only downloaded it.
If downloading new JDK is the problem what should I do now?

At command Prompt,
"eclipse -vm "c:\java\jdk1.6_0_14\jre\bin\javaw" " is working
But when I run eclipse.exe as
"eclipse" ,it is not working.
I set the path and classpath of the system to java1.6 .
When I use "eclipse -consoleLog -debug" , another Command Prompt is opening and immediately closing.
I am not able to read what is in that command prompt.
I am also facing the same problem now.
but none of the above solutions resolved my issue and when i ran the below command from command line (eclipse -clean) , its just blinking the eclipse once and closing.
Try reinstalling Eclipse. At times Eclipse just gets messed up to the point where reinstalling is the only option. This is especially true if you installed a lot fo plugins and/or you let Eclipse automatically update itself. I have learned to have minimal plugins (I install only 2 - one for Subversion, one for Maven) and I never update.
