Hello there,
Has anyone had this happened on their mac? I got a Eclipse popup message when double click the application icon and here is what it says:

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be availabe in order to run eclipse...

I have macosx 10.4 and my java1.5 is installed. I can run other java app fine. Any ideas?

Thanks.

I am running Eclipse 3.2.2 on a Mac running 10.4 with 768 MB of RAM and JDK 1.5.0_07.

What output do you get when you type the following command into the Terminal app:

java -version

I get the output that the JRE is version 1.5.0_07

You could sweep your Mac Console app and then try running Eclipse again and see if there is more info in the Mac Console app.
