  • Programming language you’re coding in: Java
  • Is connected mode used: no
    • Connected to SonarCloud or SonarQube (and which version): no
  • IDE: Eclipse Java EE IDE for Web Developers. Version: Photon Release (4.8.0)

And a thorough description of the problem / question:

The SonarLint view doesn’t appear in my Eclipse Photon.
I couldn’t find the reason why this happens or how to solve it.
How can I resolve this?
I’m new in programming. :stuck_out_tongue:


Hi @Tulho_Melo

SonarLint can only run if your IDE is started with Java 11+. It is the most probable cause of SonarLint not loading.
You can confirm this hypothesis by opening Help → About Eclipse → Installation Details → Configuration and looking for the value of java.version:

My first advice would be to use a more recent version of Eclipse if you can because Photon is totally outdated.

If you can’t, then I think you can configure Eclipse Photon to start with Java 11.

Hope that helps.

It worked. :smiley:
Thank you!
