    Have you tried one of these downloads?

    Apple Java downlaods

    According to Apple, Java with the JDK should come pre-installed on their OSX opperating system.

    Eclipse has two separate downloads for mac: Mac Carbon and Mac Cocoa. I think (not positive) that Mac Carbon is the version for older macs (the ones that run Apple's processor), and Mac Cocoa is for Intel-based macs. From previous experience with Eclipse, All you need to do is download and extract from the archive to get it running (provided you have a properly installed version of the JDK).

    Second helloworld's response: the JDK should is pre-installed on a mac, so there shouldn't need to be any fancy configuration - Eclipse should be instal and go. For what its worth apple seemed a bit late to the party to ship computers with jdk6. As a result I still try to avoid jdk6 specific features so the software can run on older mac OS's
