Hi Vibhor,

What OS are you on? Windows 7? Are you running a 32 or 64-bit Eclipse installation? And which version is your Java SDK, 32 or 64-bit? They should be the same...

Maybe this post helps?

Good luck!

After installing the JDK you need to configure Eclipse to use the JDK. This post should help:
