I hope adding -ea as VM arg in the launch configuration and setting the source code level to >= 1.4 should be enough to enable assertions.

Open the run dialog and modify the VM arguments under the 'Arguments' tab. I would suggest that you use notepad instead of eclipse, since the IDE helps you autocomplete almost everything
