Bring Eclipse back on track

All of the sudden, Eclipse stopped working. It started doing something, taking forever for some weird initialization processes like "initializing java tooling" and the similar.

A tip from this site actually  helped to solve the issue:
Kill the stale Eclipse, delete the folder
and start the Eclipse again. The folder will be created on the next start.

Don't forget also to delete .metadata/.lock each time Eclipse crashes or being killed.
