Eclipse (Java/SWT App): Reconfigure to run as 64-bit

I’m answering your “another interesting question”.

In Eclipse there is a Feature called ‘Delta Pack’ which makes Eclipse able to export RCP applications into different platforms than the Eclipse you’re looking at. It knows how to make 32/64 bits too.

But it has disadvantages:

1.) It’s somewhat slow to export (a half minute maybe)

2.) You have to debug your application via Remote Java Application debugging (on localhost probably)

I’m not sure about the second point; I was fixing a UI bug which only appeared on Ubuntu exports so I had to debug it on a virtual-machine as a Remote app.
