- 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.
- 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.
