I am using eclipse 3.2. Eclipse crashes after 5-6 hours of development everday. Sometimes it gives Out of Memory error. Sometimes it disappears from screen without any warnings. My arguments in eclipse.ini are -vmargs
-Xms512m
-Xmx1024m
How can i get rid of this problem.

Prachi,
Is there anything in the workspace/.metadata/.log file that looks relevant?

I'm not sure if this is helpful for you, but i had a similar problem. Sometimes I got an OutOfMemoryError.

In my case the message was something like java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: PermGen space. For me, the solution was to add the parameter '-XX:PermSize=128m'. Since i did that, Eclipse isn't crashing anymore.
