I need to know how do I give a runtime argument to a java program while using Eclipse?

Like I know - using the command line I can give java myCompiledClass theArgument

How do I do the same thing with Eclilpse???

On the "Run" dialog where you give it the name of your startup class there is a tab for arguments.

I get to this tab by clicking the down arrow next to the Run toolbar icon and select the "Run..." menu item.

From   Run >> Arguments >> Then ??

There are two text boxes/options ---- Program Arguments and VM Arguments?

Do I simply provide the argument value there in the Program Argument???

That's it?

If you want to give program arguments you put it in "program arguments" textbox
Take example
java abc.abd.yourClass -h -m 50
"-h -m 50" are your program arguments.
java -Djava.xml.XMLParserFactory=org.dom4j.DOMXMLParser  abc.abd.yourClass
"-Djava.xml.XMLParserFactory=org.dom4j.DOMXMLParser " is VM argument.
