You can still do it the manual way; apt will only ever contain whatever release of Eclipse Debian chooses to build. You might have to work around some UI issues specific to certain releases of GTK3.|
1) Get a current JDK from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/ , keeping in mind whether your system is 64-bit or 32-bit.
2) On https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ , clicking on "Download Packages" takes you to https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/eclipse-packages/ . Download the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers", keeping in mind whether you got a 64-bit or 32-bit JDK. They have to match.
3) Unzip it and run. If Eclipse can't find the version of Java you installed, consult http://help.eclipse.org/neon/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/running_eclipse.htm?cp=0_3_0 for examples about the -vm command line switch. You should be able to go with the remaining defaults.
For more information:
Further details that you can skip over if you want:
1) While a lot of folks only actually need the JRE download, the JDK is a superset of what's in the JRE. Going with the JDK is one less thing to think about.
3) Yes, you can tweak the eclipse.ini if you want and embed which VM and which arguments to always use when starting. I tend to prefer writing and using a shell script with them and launching Eclipse from a terminal window, even on Windows. If "eclipse.exe" or "./eclipse" does nothing at all, make sure the executable and any .dll/.so files under the top-level "eclipse" folder are Executable by you.
