I want to install java 6 and Eclipse 4x versions in my PC. I want to develop an application that uses Struts,hibernate,springs.
So, can someone tell me the process how to install the software which is best version to do such applications.

Do i need to install Tomcat independently or not . which version of Eclipse supports java 6 .

Download and install Eclipse package named "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" - that's the one for building web apps.

You will need to install Tomcat separately.

Download Java jdk first.
HINT: Do not install to "Program Files..", install to something like c:\java_jdk\...
HINT: Although antiquated, you should still set JAVA_HOME environment variable.

Then download and install Eclipse.

Under servers, you can install Tomcat into and managed by Eclipse.

I agree. Here's the link:
