The best things I can tell you are these:
1) Follow the sticky post from the top of this forum:
2) If you plan Java development, you need a JDK rather than a JRE. I
advise you to download, expand, but not install a JDK, the latest 7 or 8
as you wish, and keep it separate from the one your computer is running on.
This makes it so that you won't ever need to ask the question you've
just asked in this post.
I would also
a) put this "private" JDK on a path like /home/russ/dev/jdk1.7.0_71
b) run Eclipse off it (instead of the one your computer uses)
c) tell Eclipse about it using the -vm option in eclipse.ini (see
This will ensure that your computer can receive updates to its JRE
without affecting your Eclipse development.
