what is the difference between eclipse and java development kit? which should you use?
- 6 days ago
Eclipse using a JDK, i.e. Java Development Kit, instead of a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). The main difference is that a JDK also contains a Java Compiler and other tools to develop Java Code, while the JRE is only able to run compiled Java applications.

Eclipse is an IDE for a JDK that happens to use a JRE to run.
You still need a JDK either way, but this (and other options out there) gives you an IDE to help debug and catch errors before you try compiling them at the command-line level yourself if you don't have one.

Do you need me to google them for you?
Do you know the difference between McDonald's and Kroger? Which one of those do you use?
