This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Install eclipse from repository and add the plug-in. That approach has worked fine here. Recently there have been lots of issues with odd Java stuff in 12.04.

Tested working in 12.04 and 12.04.1

Those are the steps that have worked for me in the passed and still do.

also could this be that i only have the jre of java and the kde? the download on the java website only gave the jre in the tar.gz – Marchosius Aug 30 '12 at 20:11
it runs fine with the openjdk – RobotHumans Aug 30 '12 at 20:16

I ran into this problem too, was solved by reading their getting started guide. Not exactly sure where in the article it is at but I assure you it's there.
