Eclipse – solution for NullPointer Exception on startup

Posted on: September 24, 2013

Try the below solution.

  1. cd .metadata/.plugins
  2. mv org.eclipse.core.resources org.eclipse.core.resources.bak
  3. Start eclipse
  4. It will start but will show errors with opened tabs. This is because we have changed the resources folder, which eclipse use for managing the resources
  5. Close all opened tabs
  6. Exit from Eclipse
  7. Delete any newly create org.eclipse.core.resources folder
  8. Rename back the ‘org.eclipse.core.resources.bak’ to ‘org.eclipse.core.resources’
  9. Start Eclipse
  10. It should start fine with all projects

It worked for me.
