Synergy Integration support of recent Eclipse versions (64bit)

Hello Synergy development,

our developers always tend to use the latest Version of Eclipse and they have to use a 64bit Version.

Please provide a Synergy Integration for a recent Eclipse 64bit Version (for example 2019-12 or newer).

We noticed an incompatibility with the IBM JRE 8.0.5.41 and Eclipse 2019-06 and later 64 Bit versions .

As soon as you click on "open catalog" (Window>Preferences>Maven>Discovery>Open Catalog) an error message "Failed to discover all connectors" appears (screenshot 20200505_Maven_Dicovery_m2e catalog_1.jpg) .

(Correctly it should look like screenshot 20200505_Maven_Dicovery_m2e catalog_2.jpg.)

It works the way it's supposed to work until Eclipse Oxygen 3a (+IBM JRE 8.0.5.41), but from Eclipse 2019-06 64-Bit and following releases, it only works with the standard JRE. Unfortunately you don´t get a connection to a Synergy database with Synergy Integration using the Standard JRE.

Therefore it is important that a upcoming Versions of the IBM JRE must also be supported with newer Eclipse 64-bit Versions, so that Maven Discovery and Synergy Integration could be used simultaneously in Eclipse 64-bit Versions.
