Do you also have 64-bit Java? If you have both 32 and 64-bit Java, is the 64-bit one your default?

By the way, you can configure Eclipse to use a specific Java, that way you can be sure you are using thew 64-bit version. See this:

Did you try looking on the fountain of knowledge (wikipedia)? See is this helps:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eclipse_(software)#Releases

Basically, Indigo, Helios, etal are Eclipse packages that include the basic Eclipse framework plus preconfigured collections of plugins. Usually, you will want to use the latest version (the link above will tell you what that is). Then you need to decide on a package. Developers working on web applications or other Java EE technology will want the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers", other will need only the "Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers" package.
