Eclipse won’t start after crash

If Eclipse crashed and won’t start again, i.e. it hangs forever, go to

Maven, Payara, JEE: Cannot find beans.xml

Docker: add new user in Alpine Linux

If you want to create a new user within a Dockerfile for an Alpine Linux, useradd won’t work. You have to use adduser.
This command will work
adduser -h /home/userx -g groupx -S userx

Please mind to add the -S (uppercase!!). If you omit this, Alpine ask interactively for a password. Interestingly, the option --disabled-password does not work!?!?
