      Description

      I have installed a plain installation of Eclipse Helios SR1 ( eclipse.buildId=M20100909-0800).
      I opened an empty workspace with java perspective to verify the installation was working ok.

      I then use the update manager to install version 2.1.1.xx-20101215-2100-e36 of the groovy plugin from http://dist.springsource.org/release/GRECLIPSE/e3.6/
      Restarted eclipse after update and loaded blank workspace again
      Java perspective has disappeared and not able to do any java functions. ie. can't open java perspective, can't create new java project or file.

      Looking in bundles.info there is no org.eclipse.jdt.core entry at all.

      See attached files for eclipseConfiguration and bundles.info after update

        You are describing a very different issue from the installation problems above.

        Are you seeing this behavior in Java code, or in Groovy code only? It is possible that this is coming from the Groovy Information Hover. I am currently on vacation and I am not able to look at this. However, could you raise a new bug for this and I will get to it as soon as I can?

        The hover problem happens when debugging java code... You are correct this is a different issue. I have opened a new bug GRECLIPSE-978 to track it.

        @Mike

        Thanks. I am going to leave this issue open since we have not actually fixed the root of it (even though we have a workaround). I'll comment on the new issue.

        Decreasing priority since we know of a workaround and there is not much we can do to actually fix this.

        Resolving this issue now. There is not much else we can do. It is easy enough to recognize and diagnose the problem and then describe the workaround
