I am using Helios with Java 6. I am wondering about giving Java 7 a try, without giving up Java 6.

Any suggestions as to how to best set this up? Should I download another copy of Eclipse? Or is there a way to set up to use both 6 & 7 on the same Helios?

You can configure Eclipse to use any number of JDKs/JREs. Go to
Window->Properties->Java->Installed JREs. Use the Add feature to add a
definition for Java 7. You can select a default for the workspace. You
can also use the Project->Properties to pick a different JRE for each
project.
