I could be entirely wrong, but I think this only applies to running
Eclipse in 64-bit mode, which hasn't been the default. I haven't
grabbed the latest release, but the prior beta releases defaulted to
32-bit mode, and I believe I was able to run Eclipse just fine
(because you don't run into a mixed-mode environment). From within
Eclipse, running in Java6-32bit, you can still define JREs that run in
64-bit, to run your app or your app server (I was able to run JBoss in
64-bit mode just fine).
So, since I don't see a TON of reason to actually run Eclipse in 64-
bit mode (need more than 2GB heap allocated?), I'm not sure this is
such a big issue?
