[Solved] Java 1.6.0_31 update breaks subclipse / Eclipse hangs during launch on Mac OSX 10.7.3

After the yesterday’s java update for MAC OS X 10.7.3, my Eclipse stopped working this morning after a clean reboot. Eclipse hangs in the launch screen and no CPU activity can be measured.

How to detect the current java version:

$ java -version
java version "1.6.0_31" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_31-b04-414-11M3626)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.6-b01-414, mixed mode)

Eclipse version:

Helios Service Release 2
Build id: 20110218-0911


  • Remove subversion plugin by navigating where you stored your eclipse app (Applications in my case).
  • Navigate to plugins and remove all org.tigris.subversion.*.jar
  • Navigate to features and remove all org.tigris.subversion.* folders


Here is a list of what I removed:

  • org.tigris.subversion.clientadapter_1.8.1.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.clientadapter.feature_1.8.1
  • org.tigris.subversion.clientadapter.javahl_1.7.4.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.clientadapter.javahl.feature_1.7.4
  • org.tigris.subversion.clientadapter.svnkit_1.7.0.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.clientadapter.svnkit.feature_1.7.0
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse_1.8.7
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.core_1.8.7.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.doc_1.3.0.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.graph_1.1.1.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.graph.feature_1.1.1
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.mylyn_3.0.0
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.mylyn_3.0.0.jar
  • org.tigris.subversion.subclipse.ui_1.8.7.jar
