I was just curious if there was a reason (other than lack of time) that there isn't a Eclipse 3.6 package in portage (at least for amd64). It seems strange to me that it isn't already available in portage, given how widely used eclipse is. Is there some barrier to using Eclipse 3.6 on gentoo/amd64? Is it on the way or, is help needed to make it available?

You may be interested in bug 325271. It looks like there are some user-provided ebuilds to get you going.

Basically eclipse 3.6 will not be added to the tree until jetty is packaged correctly. No one has any interest in doing it, therefore it doesn't get done.

Thanks. It sounds like it is indeed more complicated than I had guessed. I don't really need to use 3.6 over 3.5 so, I'll stick with 3.5 for the time being. It looks like this needs the attention of someone more knowledgeable than me but, maybe I'll have a look sometime.

I would just download eclipse 3.6 and run it that way. Just pick the right version.

I do not believe that this "Java" - thing will establish on the market at all ... so why doing the efford to support it that deep? </ignorance>

You do not have another choice but to use layman or run Eclipse besides from Portage . And that will be the case for quite a long time, I guess ...

Moved from Portage & Programming to Unsupported Software, as it's not in the Portage tree.

Maybe we can just skip 3.6 and try to get 4.1 into the tree, provided it es not as much a PIA.

I'm migrating to binary home based installs to. Both for Eclipse, Tomcat and android-sdk.
The android-sdk-update-manager ebuild works ok, but the program itself changes the install folders owner everytime you install or update a new package (platform, tools, samples, docs). It just wasn't built for a multiuser single-install usage.
I've opened a bug at their bug tracker, no response yet.
