Hello Alan,

what version of Eclipse do you use ?

The version currently in sid seems to be still of 2.x generation. Is it
that ? Then uninstall it as quickly as possible and never touch it
again ... ;-)

... and go pick one fresh one on eclipse.org, for instance this

unzip it in your *local* *personnal* folder (just forget about a
system-wide installation until you are so familiar with
eclipse/debian/everything else that you can do it eyes closed)

hop ! you have an instantly-working eclipse 3.

then, check that it does not come with its own jvm/jre (in subfolders),
and if so delete it so as to allow eclipse to really benefit from your
freshly-installed 1.5 jsdk.

then, plugin installation will be a piece of cake, too

have a good trip in eclipse-land :)
