I'm new to programming, trying to self teach right now with all these links and google but it's just not happening (and yes I read the newcomers post but its not helping either at the moment) - I just am not getting it right now, but I really want to learn this and contribute to the process.
I downloaded Eclipse Luna and when I try to run/open it I get this -

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK)
must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine
was found after searching the following locations:
java in your current PATH

I get it, Eclipse needs a JDK - can someone tell me, though, in english, how and where to get this and how to use it to run the IDE? please and thank you Smile much appreciation.

It needs a JRE, a JDK will just have more potentially useful content for Java developers.

You can download a JDK from
