    My eclipse integration is not working, because my eclipse (Linux Mint) is not using Oracle JDK but Open JDK. At least this is what the error message says. I can not understand that, because Visual Paradigm is running without Oracle JDK on my machine. So why does it need a specific JDK with the eclipse integration???
