Eclipse locked up when building workspace
Yesterday eclipse worked as expected. But when starting up this morning it hangs forever (at least for to long for me to wait for it) on “building workspace “.
After excluding the ususal suspects (subversive, m2eclipse, mac osx firewall) it turned out – this time- , that one project referenced an outdated builder (org.openarchitectureware.base.oawBuilder) that was removed from my system some months ago. It seems that I forgot that particular project when migrating from oaw to the eclipse modelling project.
Removing the builder manually from the .project-file enabled eclipse to build the workspace and me to hack my first lines of code this morning.
And I have absolutely no idea why it suddenly stopped working. Or the other way around: why it did work over the last months.
