Solved the Eclipse RCP export failure on OS X

After a lot of trial and error, I’ve solved the Eclipse RCP export failure on OS X. The solution was to force Eclipse to use Java 1.6 and not the default 1.7. Simply add the following line to your eclipse.ini: -vm /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home/bin/java

Eclipse RCP export failure

Even though the JCrypTool runtime in Eclipse is working perfectly fine, exporting the product via the Product Configuration Editor fails on OS X 10.8.2 with Java 1.7.0_09 (the same happened with 1.7.0_07). Every export crashes after 2 percent with the following exception: /[…]/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.pde.core/temp/org.eclipse.pde.container.feature/compile.org.eclipse.pde.[…]/build.xml:31: /Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk1.7.0_09.jdk/Contents/Home/Classes does not exist. The following error occurred while executing this line:… Continue reading Eclipse RCP export failure

JCrypTool release candidate 6 takes a little while longer…

As you may have already noticed, JCrypTool release candidate 6 (RC6) is already delayed. While there are still some (minor) issues we are working on, both in core and crypto, the main reason for the delay is this bug in FlexiProvider. This issue causes endless loops in different FlexiProvider operations and makes some crypto plug-ins… Continue reading JCrypTool release candidate 6 takes a little while longer…

Apache XML Security 1.5.0 released

Apache Santuario 1.5.0 has been released. As the release notes point out, this release is not binary compatible with Santuario 1.4 any more. There are some really good updates included, of which I like that Xalan/Xerces are not required dependencies any more the most. Under the covers, support for Java 1.4 was dropped, and generics… Continue reading Apache XML Security 1.5.0 released
