Eclipse reported "Failed to load JNI shared library"

If you see the error "Failed to load JNI shared library" when starting Eclipse, it means that the Java Native Interface (JNI) library required by Eclipse cannot be found or loaded.

This can be caused by a number of factors, including:

  1. Eclipse is not pointing to the correct Java installation: Make sure that Eclipse is configured to use the correct Java version and that the Java executable is in the system path.

  2. The JNI library is missing or corrupt: Make sure that the JNI library required by Eclipse is present in the correct location and is not corrupt. On Windows, the JNI library is usually located in the bin directory of the Java installation.

  3. There is a conflict with another software: If you have multiple Java installations or multiple copies of Eclipse installed on your system, there may be a conflict between them. Try uninstalling or disabling one of them to see if it resolves the issue.

  4. There is a problem with your system configuration: If none of the above solutions work, there may be a problem with your system configuration. Try updating your system libraries or drivers, or reinstalling the operating system.

If you are unable to fix the problem, you can try starting Eclipse with the -clean option, which will reset the Eclipse configuration. To do this, open a command prompt and navigate to the Eclipse installation directory,
