OS X includes Java (except for Lion which requires you to install it manually). However, the Eclipse system requirements state that you need the version that comes with Leopard (Java 5?). What version of Java are you running?

Honestly I'm not sure, it is whatever came originally on OSX 10.4.11 so maybe Java 4???

I doubt it was the default - Java 1.4 was released more than three years previous to that. I'm guessing that Java 5, released seven months before Tiger, is the default. What do you get when you execute the following from the command line:
Code:
java -version
I just checked - Java 5 is indeed available for Tiger. Make sure Java is up to date through Software Update.

It tells me that I am running java 1.5 . And it still tells me I need leopard. Is there an older version of Eclipse or another inerface that will be compatible with Tiger?

You could try some of the older ones.

Older Versions Of Eclipse - Eclipsepedia

The 3.5.2 versions would probably work. If not, go further back.

Really, though, an upgrade to Snow Leopard would be well worth the $30.

Snow can't run on that system, and I was able to find an older version of eclipse. Thanks for all the help everyone.

Agreed unless you're using a PowerPC Mac. If you are using a PPC Mac, you can only upgrade to Leopard.

19birel, have you tried running 3.7? The Eclipse JRE requirements page states that it, "will work fine on other current Java VMs running on window systems supported by SWT." I imagine that SWT worked on Tiger at some point so it might be worth starting at 3.7 and working your way backwards.
