All of a sudden, I started hitting this issue. I noticed a similar thread several years back. Any pointers?

Not sure if this is a coincidence. But before getting into this state, I removed the old eclim installation from /usr/local/eclipse/plugins dir --> this was based on your earlier comment to make sure that when I start eclimd, it uses the local eclim installation.

At this point, I don't have any eclim files/dir under /usr/local/eclipse dir. They are only present under $HOME/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_185596441_linux_gtk_x86_64/

My user.properties contains:

eclipse.home=/usr/local/eclipse
eclipse.local=${user.home}/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_4.3.0_185596441_linux_gtk_x86_64/

After searching a little more, I figured that we have not been able to resolve this. So I reinstalled eclipse, blew away $HOME/.eclipse dir and used the "sudo ant" approach as earlier. It works fine. I will look into the "non sudo" approach little later, once I make progress on the actual functionality.

Also, how does the $HOME/.eclipse dir get created?

When I restart eclim and try the command line way of invoking, I get connection refused. I can run commands from vim though. What could be the reason?
$ eclim -command java_search
connect: Connection refused

Eclipse can be very finicky if you are switching the location of
bundles without using their p2 tools. I'd recommend removing and
re-installing eclipse, initializing your ~/.eclipse dir, then building
eclim with -Declipse.user.

That or you can do what I do and simply use one of the eclipse.org
distributions and extract it as your non-su user somewhere that is
writable by that user. Then you no longer have to deal with these
split configuration issues.

I'm not exactly sure when that directory is created, but you can force
it to be created using:

$ eclipse -initialize

Perhaps you're not using the default port (9091), so you need to tell
eclim the port that you would like to connect to:

$ eclim --nailgun-port 9092 -command ...

About the "Cannot connect to eclim" error .. yea, I realized that I was running instance of eclim on different port :) So using the -f option to pass eclimrc to eclim command worked.

I encountered the

java.lang.RuntimeException: Application "org.eclim.application" could not be found in the registry 

today. After reading this:


I decided to get rid of my "~/.eclipse/org.eclipse.platform_[...]/p2" directory (renamed it to p2.bak). No RuntimeException is thrown, and :PingEclim works now for me. 

Cheers

Kristóf
