Eclipse is not designed to open a jar and run it. You'd need to create a Java project and add that as a library to run in. And even then, you'd want to specify what this thing is supposed to decompile. I think it's designed to be used on the command line, so I'd suggest reading their FAQ:

Ask them how to use it if that's not clear from the FAQ.
