I'm trying to install Eclipse.
I'm running macOS Sierra 10.12.2
After downloading the Eclipse installer, I tried to run it, but got the error: "To open "Eclipse-inst" you need to install the legacy Java SE 6 runtime."
Why is it asking for legacy Java SE 6?
Isn't that an old version?
It seems like you might have downloaded just the JRE for Java, as opposed to the JDK. Try downlaoding from this link:
The top option is the one you want. JDK8u111.
Thank you. I think that did the trick...just wondering, which of the many eclipse options do I pick that's most suitable?
