Hello,

I have tried with Eclipse Version: 2020-03 (4.15.0)Build id: 20200313-1211 and java openJDK JDK13 and eclipse hangs up when i invoke the open call hierarchy.

Have just set up this plugin. It works well. Thank you!

Eclipse 4.8 + OpenJDK11 + Windows10

Will try the same on my Mac today.

Hi,

I installed via marketplace into 2019-09 R (4.13.0), but Open Editor view does not show up. There is a comment that I should use JDK11. My Mac has installed jdk1.8.0_111.jdk. I do not understand how to get from 1.8 to 11?

regards

spachner

It is correct that with Java 8, the view will not show up.

I don't have a Mac, but I think you should be able to download OpenJDK for MacOS from here: https://adoptopenjdk.net/releases.html?variant=openjdk11&jvmVariant=hot…

Afterwards, you have to configure this JDK in the file eclipse.ini of your Eclipse installation. Therefor, use the -vm option, as explained here: https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse.ini#Specifying_the_JVM
