I'm brand new to Eclipse and am looking to begin my Android app development skills (I've already started the tutorials for Google's - and later MIT's - App Inventor program).

But I had no idea there were so many Eclipse packages. I need to know which one I download to appropriately tackle the Java language for Android cell phones.

Thanks!

Android support tools are provide by Google not Eclipse. You need to go
to Google for Android questions.

I understand. Much thanks.
What package, though, do I download just for Java development?

Well I suppose the obvious choice would be Eclipse IDE for Java Developers.

I've done Android development. I found things went better with Eclipse
IDE for Java Developers (rather than Java EE Developers which I use more
often).
