- If you use Eclipse Photon (June 2018) or later and you create your own
project, you're prompted to make up a Module Name. The safest thing to
do is to click the Don't Create button. If you make up a name
and click the Create button, Eclipse might refuse to run your
code. (Modules can't contain files that aren't in named packages. So, if
you haven't gotten around to putting your files in named packages, your
code won't run.)
- As of November 20, 2018, Eclipse doesn't seem to support Java 11. If
you're using the Eclipse IDE, please download Java 9 or Java 10. You can
find Java 9 at https://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/java-archive-javase9-3934878.html.
- I'm not a lawyer but, as I understand it, the version of Java at
Oracle's web site is still free to use if you're using it only to
practice writing Java code. You can't use it for free to put an
application into production. If you want a completely free version of
Java, visit jdk.java.net.
