Hello @Niteesh_M,

As advertised on the Marketplace, the lowest supported version at the moment is Eclipse Photon (4.8).

Eclipse Mars was released 7 years ago, out of curiosity do you have any constraint to use it ?

I would recommend to migrate to new versions of Eclipse if possible

Hi @Damien_Urruty,

Apologies for the late response.

Thanks for your suggestion.

Yes, at the moment I have some constrains to upgrade eclipse to LTS version. Until then, I have to work on the current one (Eclipse Mars 2) only.

Could you suggest me what is the suitable Sonarlint version, Compatible with ( Eclipse Mars 2 and Sonarqube 8.9.8.)


Hello @Niteesh_M,

I think you managed to install an older version thanks to this thread.

I still recommend you to migrate to newer versions of Eclipse and SonarLint.

I will close this thread, please open another one if you still need help
