Running Eclipse IDE in a specific JVM

Use the -vm command line option to point eclipse.ide to a specific JRE bin directory:

start eclipse.exe -vm C:\Programs\Java\JRE\V1.6.0_14\bin\

Summary: Starting Eclipse IDE

We use the following batch script to start Eclipse IDE on Windows. The file lives in the same directory as eclipse.exe.

set THIS_SCRIPT_DIRECTORY_PATHNAME=%~dp0
set ECLIPSE_IDE_EXECUTABLE_FILE_BASENAME=eclipse.exe
set ECLIPSE_IDE_EXECUTABLE_FILE_PATHNAME=%THIS_SCRIPT_DIRECTORY_PATHNAME%%ECLIPSE_IDE_EXECUTABLE_FILE_BASENAME%
set ECLIPSE_IDE_JVM_DIRECTORY_PATHNAME=C:\Programs\Java\JRE\V1.6.0_14\bin\

start %ECLIPSE_IDE_EXECUTABLE_FILE_PATHNAME% -vm %ECLIPSE_IDE_JVM_DIRECTORY_PATHNAME%

Displaying line numbers in the Editor

Go to Windows > Preferences... Drill down to General > Editors > Text Editors. Tick "Show line numbers".

Displaying the print margin

Go to Windows > Preferences... Drill down to General > Editors > Text Editors. Tick "Show print margin" and set the "Print margin column" (we normally set it to 75).
