Sounds like your Eclipse installation got corrupted. I suggest reinstalling.

According to my search for the class, it should be in:
eclipse/plugins/org.eclipse.osgi_3.5.0.v20090520.jar
That is the Eclipse 3.5 location, the JAR file name will be different for other versions.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
