hi all,
I am using eclipse gallelio for the last 5 month and today when i was installing new tools the electricity was gone! when electricity came back the o/s starts and do scanning process, i found out a message on that process is that, "eclipse/artifacts.xml" is invalid. After starting the o/s i go to eclipse and click on it. it does not start. then i unzip the backup file of eclipse galileo and copy the artifacts.xml file and paste it into running eclipse. when i click again the eclipse button, it starts. but when i go to install new software on help menu, the new software installation process does not work. now, what i need to you is:


Can anyone tell me about any automated or manual process by which i can found how much damage is done on my installed eclipse?

Please help me, friends. Have a nice day.

thank you

The problem could be either in your workspace or the Eclipse installation itself. Try this: open a new workspace, then try installing a new plugin and see if that works. If it does, copy your projects from your old workspace to the new one. If it doesn't work, reinstall Eclipse. And given that the system crashed, also try reinstalling the JDK.

You may be able to regenerate this using the metadata generator

If the artifact.xml file is corrupted and deleted automatically by system error after installation of some plugins and i placed this file again by unzipping the original eclipse zip file, is it create any problem to run the software again? the plugins runs errorlessly?

Actually what i mean is that, when i update and install the software does the artifact.xml file also updated? and if so, then if i replace that file with the backdated one is it run errorlessly?

thanks

I'm not sure if you tried this already, but give it a try:

1. Install a new instance of Galileo
2. Copy the artifacts.xml from new installation to the old installation
3. Run the old installation with -clean option e.g. eclipse.exe -clean

I had a similar problem and could solve it by doing the above.

Cheers
