SonarLint 7.3.1 for Eclipse 4.15 Issues

  • Windows 10 Enterprise
  • Eclipse 4.15
  • SonarLint 7.3.1
  • SonarQube 9.2.4 (Developer)

Upgraded from SonarLint 5.3.0 and now there is no sign of SonarLint in Eclipse. There is no Preferences > SonarLint, no SonarLint views, nothing. How can I get this working?

Hi @dsearles

You should check Eclipse logs to see the error.

Maybe you are you running Eclipse with a JVM version lower than 11? SonarLint requires a minimal Java runtime of Java 11.
You can check the current JVM version in Eclipse Help → About → Installation Details → Configuration:

If you need to change the JVM used to start Eclipse, see:

Yes, that is the issue. I run two Eclipse environments, one using Java 8 for supporting a legacy product which requires Java 8 and another using Java 11. I hadn’t checked the Java 11 environment with the 7.3.1 SonarLint yet.
