I run eclipse perfectly fine on edgy using the SUN JDK!

Download it from Sun and give it a go making sure that you set the
JAVA_HOME path correctly.

There are also other means of installing it via the Ubuntu
repositories I believe, but I prefer to have a number of versions all
separately installed if I need to use or test using another version.
