Do you have problems starting eclipse?

Did you have installed Java on your system? If not, you have to download and install the latest java version (JDK 6 Update 7): http://java.sun.com/javase/downloads/index.jsp

If you have jdk installed on your system, you should change your path and add the installation path of java to path
or use command line argument to mention the JVM path, like

eclipse -vm /opt/jdk1.5.0/bin/java

Yes, as others have stated, Eclipse doesn't automatically install a JDK; therefore, you will have to follow their advice to download/install a JDK/JRE.

Then you can use Ajay's suggestion or alternatively in Eclipse, Window --> Preferences --> Java --> Installed JREs and click Add and then follow wizard to set Standard VM's java home, JARs, etc.
