Hey all.
1. I am a newbie in eclipse and I want to ask you how to delete a plugin (cancel it)
just delete its dir under plugin directory of eclipse ?
2. I have J2SE SDK installed in my system and I have set the JAVA_HOME
environment variable to point to that dir.
a friend told me that I have to force eclipse to use the SDK instead of
JRE in order to be able to use the content assist and other feature.
if this is true, would you mind telling me how to force eclipse to use SDK ?
something like : eclipse -vm D:\SDK\bin\javaw.exe ??
3. what is a good size of the heap to specify (my RAM is 192MB) ?
thanks.

Yes.

The "-vm" command line argument for the Eclipse executable just specifies which JRE to use for running Eclipse itself. You should instead go to "Window > Preferences > Java > Installed JREs" and add your SDK(s) there.

How much of that 192MB is free when you're running everything you will be running aside Eclipse? I'd suggest using about half of the free memory for Eclipse.
