Basically, you want to pass an argument (-ea) to the VM. How to do this might vary depending on your version of Eclipse, but here's how it works in Eclipse Europa...
  • Open the Run Dialog (this should be an option under the "Run" menu).
  • Click on the tab, "(x)= Arguments."
  • In the field for "VM arguments," enter -ea to enable assertions.
  • Click on the "Apply" button.

    You can enable assertions for Junit thus:

    Window -> Preferences -> Java -> JUnit -> check the box at the top of the dialog labelled "Add '-ea' to VM arguments".

    I think this thread might fit better in the IDEs forum, so shall move it.
