I tried installing various versions of eclipse and latest one is wtp-all-in-one-sdk-R-2.0-200706260303-win32.
Somehow when I click on eclipse.exe it opens up for a moment,command prompt comesup and then it just stops.
I installed JDK1.5 also on my system.Can someone please help me what could have happened here and I could further troubleshoot this?
I don't recognize the file name you posted. Or maybe I do, but that package is dated from 2007; that is ancient in Eclipse years. The typical name for an Eclipse package is something like this: eclipse-jee-indigo-win32-x86_64.zip.
The package I pointed out will let you build web services.
I suspect that you are having problems with the version of the JDK that you have installed. What OS are you using? What is the result from typing "java -version"? Exactly where did you install Eclipse (post the full path to the eclipse directory).

Thanks Peter for your help.The issue was the JDK installed was 64 bit and eclipse that I downloaded was 32 bit.

Hi. I'm also having problems getting eclipse to work. I installed it and tried to open it, but this message appeared:
A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK) must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine was found after searching the following locations.
javaw.exe in your current PATH
So, I went online and installed a JDK, the right one for my computer, and I have tried using your instructions to set my path, but that same message keeps appearing. What can I do to make this work? I need Eclipse for my Compsci class assignment.
