Eclipse not starting in RHEL4

I am using Redhat Linux Enterprise 4 that has Java version 1.4.2 installed. I downloaded the eclipse-java-galileo-SR1-linux-gtk.tar.gz file from Eclipse site and decompressed and put it into /us/local/eclipse location. But when I try to run it using ./eclipse & I see it gives me the error below. Any idea why and how I can resolve any library dependency issue that may be here?

It seems that you're using GCJ and not Sun JDK. To use Eclipse Galileo, it's recommended to use JDK 5 above.

SCJP 5.0, SCWCD 1.4, SCBCD 1.3, SCDJWS 1.4

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
