I've installed Aptana Studio 3 Standalone but every time around one minute after opening php file Aptana just crashes. Java versions I've tried:

alternatives --config java

There are 3 programs which provide 'java'.

  Selection    Command
*  1           /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0u25-sun-i586/bin/java
   2           /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0-openjdk/bin/java
 + 3           /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.7.0-openjdk/bin/java

Sometimes terminal shows some errors too, sometimes not:

And here is Aptana error log:

Any solution?

That error looks ugly.

Aptana is a third party application, so you will likely have better luck on their site

I did see they have a bug reporting system, good luck.

How did you try those versions? Because Aptana is Eclipse-based application and it does not run with system wide JVM (the one you set using alternatives), but the one you run it for the first time.

Try this:

aptana -vm /usr/lib/jvm/jre-1.6.0u25-sun-i586/bin/java

I do not recommend running 3rd party apps on OpenJDK, because those vendors are testing it on Oracle/Sun JDK.
