Configure eclipse with selenium webdriver on Apple mac

Hi Experts:

I have an Apple Macbook.  I am not very familiar with Macbooks.  I am a windows person.  I need help in configuring Eclipse with Selenium webdriver on Macbook.

I understand that first I must have Java installed.  When I click on Apple > About this Mac > More info > Software applications: I find among the list the following Java entries:
•      Java VisualVM
•      Java Web Start

I started with installing Java on my mac first, before installing Eclipse and then, Selenium, are these two items sufficient?

The reason I ask is that on my other mac I have the following items under Apple > About this Mac > More info > Software applications:
•      Java Preferences
•      Java VisualVM
•      Java Web Start
•      Java(™) Platform SE binary
•      Java(™)Update Checker
•      Java(™) Converter
•      Javaeoutil
•      JavaMOnitor
•      javaPLaybackManager

Can you please guide me thru the step by step process to setup selenium webdriver on Macbook?

It looks you have java installed on your macbook. To ensure this, go to command prompt and run below command.
java -version

If this is not working then install java by referring http://docs.oracle.com/javase/7/docs/webnotes/install/mac/mac-jdk.html.

Download eclipse from http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/?osType=macosx and install it.

Once you have java and eclipse installed, then include selenium webdriver by referring http://www.softwaretestingmentor.com/selenium-tutorials/how-to-setup-selenium-webdriver-in-eclipse-ide/
