Is there anything interesting in the log file?
It's located in /path/to/workspace/.metadata/.log
Before I cleaned everything and reinstalled, the log contained these
three items (multiple times):
---------------- .log entries --------------
!ENTRY org.eclipse.ui 4 0 2011-03-09 20:05:05.798
!MESSAGE Unable to create editor ID

After cleaning and reinstalling, the log is basically empty. So the
above errors my be red herrings. I tried creating a new user and
running eclipse, but no luck (no ant preferences, no ant builder, no ant
editor). I tried installing Sun's jdk, and got the same result.
I tried to find a difference between my machine's eclipse installation
and another f14 installation (with working ant features), without luck.
The /usr/lib64/eclipse tree looks the same regarding ant jars.
It seems like the ant jars are not being recognized on my machine.
Possibly a classpath issue. But I can't see the difference between the
