Eclipse – How to resolve “Initializing Java Tooling”
Eclipse is one of my favorite IDE’s. In fact, it is more popular than any IDE out there. But working with Eclipse hasn’t been always smooth, there is no end to problems you face if you are too innovative to use it.
Recently i noticed when eclipse starts, in progress console, it will always show “Initializing Java Tooling” stuck at 1%. If you do any further action command, it will lie in waiting queue. Even if you close eclipse, it will keep on waiting for “Initializing Java Tooling”. Definitely something wrong have caused it.
To solve this issue, you can do following-
delete the following directory and it’s sub-directories- $WORKSPACE/.metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.core.resources/.project
Restart Eclipse, the problem should go away.
