Handling the Maven exception while opening the Eclipse

Hello friends,

You might have faced the issue when you opens the Eclipse and selects the workspace to open, it loads the workspace and after some time shows you the exception that says like this:

The very basic solution is to delete the .metadata of the workspace folder. The main problem with this solution is that it deletes everything, I mean it is same as creating a new folder and using it as the workspace. 

So I googled it and found the more simpler solution to overcome this situation. 

Instead of deleting the .metadata folder you can just delete the ".metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.e4.workbench/workbench.xmi" file and then restart the eclipse. It will load normally with all other settings saved and will remove the settings related to the UI of the eclipse like the positions of the components (console panel, error panel etc.). 

Hope this will help you some way or the other.
