How do I run Eclipse using Oracle’s new 1.7 JDK for the Mac?

There is another way. Please add two following lines before -vmargs in the .ini file:


(remember these need to be separate lines) and also add a corresponding entry in ‘Info.plist’ file (add or modify array items under “Eclipse” key – each string child element corresponds to a command line parameter).


Alternatively just use -vm {YOUR_JAVA_7_HOME}/lib/server/libjvm.dylib command line parameter when running eclipse from terminal.
