A JRE is enough because Eclipse has its own compiler. However if you
want to browse or debug in the Java source code, a JDK is better.
Eclipse is an IDE that runs on a java VM. It only requires a jre. However, if you plan on developing Java applications, you probably want a JDK (Oracle supplies both. The licensing is different and they have different tool sets) A JRE just runs java applications. The JDK includes library source and a number of other tools you likely will need to develop Java applications. Having the source from the JDK available to Eclipse when you are developing a Java application makes the process much easier.
