I am trying to install eclipse on a fresh MacOS Catalina (10.15.3) macbook pro.

I first installed the JDK 14

➜ ~ /usr/libexec/java_home
/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/jdk-14.jdk/Contents/Home
➜ ~ java --version
java 14 2020-03-17
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 14+36-1461)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14+36-1461, mixed mode, sharing)

When I run the installed I get the error:
"Failed to create the Java Virtual Machine"

Screenshot attached. Any advice would be helpful. I am working on a deadline.

I uninstalled jdk-14, jdk-15, jdk-16 and leaved jdk-8u and it works!
I read so many forums and answers. They are all complicated. This one is the best. Easy and works.
