Could use some guidance. I work for in IT for a school that is getting ready to do a robotics program next semester. I was tasked with installing Eclipse and Java JDK in preparation for this. That was all the information I was given.

Now the questions. What version of eclipse and Java do I need to get them started. We use single sign on and everyone has their own login. Is their a way to share the project between students? Any guidance would be helpful, not getting alot of information form actual use end.

The most comprehensive exposé I've seen would be Lars Vogel's Eclipse
IDE tutorial. It's long, but says it all. Check it out.

A few questions to start with:
What OS are you on?
Do you generally install applications on each workstation, or use some kind of shared apps infrastructure (eg, Citrix)?
Do you know (or can you find out) what SDK or toolkit will be used for the robotics coding?

Thanks for the reply.

We are on Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.
We install apps on each work station.
They will be coding in Java.

First you should install the latest Java JDK from Oracle (1.8 as of this writing, there's a link at http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/develop.xml).
Then get the latest version of Eclipse's IDE for Java Developers at https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ . Depending on how you do the rollout to multiple workstations you might use the Installer instead of he direct package download.

When you say "share the project" do you mean Eclipse itself or the actual coding project(s) the students will be developing?

I believe he means the actual coding project the students will be developing.

I will definitely give the other 2 a download and look today.

Thanks for the help!

Sharing projects needs to be done via a proper SCM system such as cvs, svn, git, etc. Eclipse does not support sharing of projects on-disk; don't try it; To nightmares and headaches that path leads.
