Eclipse 2020-09 needs JVM 11 or greater

After updating to the latest version of Eclipse I get this message, because Manajaro ships openJDK 1.8.0_XXX by default and a simple install of a higher version doesn’t resolve this.

Anyone know what I have to do?

extra/jdk-openjdk 14.0.2.u12-1
sudo pacman -S jdk-openjdk

As I wrote the install of the package doesn’t help get the error anyway

Does it find the installed JDK?
eclipse -vm /usr/lib/jvm/java-14-openjdk/bin

You can select a newer Java environment using archlinux-java.


Thanks @pobrn and @wntr I switched to jdk-openjdk 14 with the command archlinux-java set java-14-openjdk Worked again without issues :+1:
