Getting Help

Mailing Lists

If at any time you have any questions or feedback, feel free to post to one of the eclim mailing lists:

  • eclim-user: For all questions regarding installation, usage, troubleshooting, etc.
  • eclim-dev: For all eclim development related discussions.

IRC (#eclim on

If you would like to get help or ask questions on IRC, then feel free to join #eclim on Please note that I (Eric Van Dewoestine, ervandew on irc) try to stay in the channel as much as possible, but I might not be available to answer questions immediately. It’s also worth noting that I live in California, so if you are in Europe, Asia, or some other timezone whose normal waking hours don’t overlap well with mine, then you may be better off getting help using one of the mailing lists above.

Reporting Bugs

If you’ve found a bug please report the issue to either the eclim-dev mailing list or create a new issue on eclim’s github issue tracker.

  • What version of eclim, vim, and eclipse are you using?
    • Linux users: please indicate whether you installed eclipse via your distro’s package manager or not, and if not, please indicate what distribution of eclipse you are using (“Eclipse Classic”, “Eclipse IDE for Java Developers”, some other eclipse bundle).
