Hi everyone!
I have just installed Eclipse Indigo (3.7.1) for Java Developers and I have a question. If I need to install JDK as well to make java application in Eclipse? I think that it isn't possible because eclipse include JDK, am I right?

Regards

If you're going to use Eclipse for Java development, then you will want
to download a proper Sun JDK and attach it. Eclipse doesn't include
this. For a discussion on this and related topics, you may wish to
peruse http://www.javahotchocolate.com/tutorials/eclipse-summary.html

thanks, but before intaling Eclipse I just only installed JRE and I can make application in Java without installing JDK. so I would ask why? Smile

A JRE is enough to develop Java applications with Eclipse but if you use
the JDK, you can also look at the source which is quite practical. If
you don't need that and Javadoc is all you need, then a JRE is fine.
