Hi Bharat

i have had a look at the thread that u suggested

This is my classpath

.;C:\bea\weblogic700\server\lib\webservices.jar;C:\bea\weblogic700\server\lib\weblogic.jar;C:\bea\weblogic700\server\lib;C:\bea_81SP2\jdk141_05\jre\lib;C:\bea_81SP2\jdk141_05\jre\lib\ext;C:\bea_81SP2\jdk141_05\lib;C:\bea_81SP2\jdk141_05\bin;C:\oracle\ora92\jdbc\lib\classes12.zip;C:\Program Files\Altova\xmlspy\XMLSpyInterface.jar

i have proper java dirs in classpath. Let me know if you some problem there.

Also can you tell me where is this 'org.eclipse.core.runtime.adaptor.EclipseStarter' placed ? May be i am missing some important jar file..

Thanks
Gauri

Hello Gauri,
This has got nothing to do with your CLASSPATH, but the "PATH" or more correctly DOS PATH if you are developing in the Windows world. Somewhere in your PATH statment, preferably, as close to the front as possible, you should set it to point to the "bin" directory of your jdk.
From looking at your classapth above, I would do something like:

PATH=C:\bea_81SP2\jdk141_05\bin;$PATH

I am assuming that you have basic familiarity with setting DOS environment variables. Just make sure that you have the path to the bin directory set as shown above. If you have other programs that need to be placed before the jdk bin directory as shown above, that is fine too.

You will have to reboot the computer after setting the PATH variable.

You may or may not have to reinstall Eclipse.

Hope this helps.

Bharat

hi bharat,

i am sorry ..my mistake...i posted classpath instead of path in hurry...

my path is ...

C:\ODI\OStore\bin;C:\oracle\ora92\bin;%SYSTEMROOT%;%SYSTEMROOT%\system32;%SYSTEMROOT%\system32\WBEM;C:\Program Files\Symantec\pcAnywhere\;C:\Program Files\IQSC\Q+E;C:\bea_81SP2\jdk141_05\bin

i have removed oracle jre bin directory. but still the problem persists...

do i have to insall eclipse ? when i unzipped the downloaded zip file...it straightaway gave eclipse.exe with other files. i did not do anything special for installing eclipse. am i missing something there ?
