When I am in the Java editor, I hit the '.' to see an object's methods, and I am interfered with a popup, "Password Required, Connect to: java.sun.com, HTTP Authentication, User name: Password:".

This just started happening today: Anyone know what is going on? How do I stop this annoying popup?

Hi Burke,

Which version of Eclipse are you using? Because till Eclipse Galileo I never faced such issue?

I was asking for a screenshot to see what editor/perspective you are using. You've given a small cropped image, anyways I am sorry i was not clear too.
Are you working with xml stuff?

Hi M Burke,

I think you are using the Maven if yes then you will get such kind of pop-ups.

I am in the Java perspective, although it happends in any perspective with a Java editor. What I am doing is 'Code Completion', the password popup interfers with this dropdown.


I am not using Maven, but I do get these popups when I use Hibernate.

The problem here is eclipse tries to connect to remote site in some cases - validating the xsd/namespaces etc.

If you are behind a proxy server that requires authentication, type in the credentials.

You may also tweak the Eclipse proxy settings, Window-> Preferences ->Network connections.

It should work fine.

Go to Windows --> Preference --> Network Connections and set Active Provider as "Direct".
This solved the problem for me in Eclipse Indigo.

To disable, go to Window-Preferences-Java-Installed JRE - select your current JRE - Edit - Select rt.jar - Java doc location - Delete java doc location path
