Hi, I'm trying to run Eclipse for the first time. I've installed Java JDK 9 and this is what I get when I run Eclipse:

An error has occured.

See the log file

None of the released Eclipse versions work out-of-the-box with Java 9; those versions will come next month starting with Oxygen.1a. Follow these instructions to get the older version to work with Java 9: , or switch back to Java 8 for now. You can use the -vm command line switch to force Eclipse to use a specific JVM executable. You can find more info that at .
