Of course it would be good to know what that error message is. Perhaps you need to install a JDK as described in https://wiki.eclipse.org/Eclipse/Installation or you installed Java 9 and need to do what's described in https://wiki.eclipse.org/Configure_Eclipse_for_Java_9

That is the issue, I have Java 9 downloaded on my mac. When will eclipse release an IDE that is combatable with java 9? Or would i have to find a way to remove it because im not having very much luck switching over to java 8.

Without getting any attachments, I would like to only have my java 9 running with a single eclipse application. Last I heard it was late October it would be released.

You need the latest release, from the 11th, or to modify the release you have properly.

If you download a package from https://www.eclipse.org/downloads/ or install using the installer (also on that page), choosing Oxygen if given a choice, you will install the latest version of Eclipse that directly works with Java 9 out-of-the-box.
