Selecting the jvm to be used to run eclipse -
eclipse -vm "C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_06\bin\javaw"

It's generally a good idea to explicitly specify which Java VM to use when running Eclipse. This is achieved with the "-vm" command line argument as illustrated above. If you don't use "-vm", Eclipse will look on the O/S path. When you install other Java-based products, they may change your path and could result in a different Java VM being used when you next launch Eclipse.

Providing proxy settings in Helios- Settings can be edited at the following path - Windos -> Preferences  -> General -> Network Connections

    Command to set the value of a system variable  - set  variable_name  "variable_value"
    Command to view the value of all the variables  - set

Tools - Fiddler (Tool to log Http(s) traffic), windows grep (To use grep in windows), sdedit (Tool to create sequence diagram)
