sorry I didn't know where to put this:

I am writing an eclipse plugin to talk to vss. I have been told that because VSS (VIA COM not webservices) is 32 bit, I will have to write it as an eclipse 32 bit plugin.

Is this true?

Unless you have to use native code you don't have to worry about 32-bit or 64-bit. Java code doesn't care about this. If you need to use native code then yes, you need to compile your native code to a 32-bit library if you want to use it with 32-bit JVMs,a dn compile it to a 64-bit library if you want to use it with 64-bit JVMs.
