This article says that Eclipse 3.3 requires a Java 5 Runtime Environment. This conflicts with [1] which seems to imply that JRE 1.4.2 is still generally acceptable even with Eclipse 3.4, and that if anything it depends on whether you use the EE package or not ("Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers requires a Java5 JRE"). Which of them is correct? 15:02, 25 September 2008 (UTC)

Some parts of Eclipse will run on JRE 1.4 or older. Some parts require 5.0 or 6.0. The Java EE bundle, because in addition to Eclipse includes EMF 2.4 (a requirement for the Web Tools project), prereqs 5.0. If you run that bundle with Java 1.4, you will only get partial function because all the plugins that need 5.0 will be disabled. --nickb 15:49, 25 September 2008 (UTC)
