Which Eclipse package did you download exactly and how did you install it?

Are you using a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Ubuntu; do you have the matching version of Eclipse?

Eclipse 3.3 (Java EE edition) runs fine on my Ubuntu 7.10 PC's.

Hello. Thanks for your kind response. I have installed eclipse 3.3 in Ubuntu 7.10 as you told. But I am using eclipse classic instead of EE. That might be the reason???

No, the other Eclipse packages that you can get from the Eclipse download page should also work.

Note that if you are running 64-bit Linux, you need to download the 64-bit version of Eclipse (look for the x86_64 package on this page). But I don't know if that's your problem, since you didn't answer my questions.

The 32-bit version of Eclipse does work on 64-bit systems. I have a copy running right now that was literally burned to a CD from a 32-bit machine and brute-force copied to my 64-bit system.

Eclipse comes with some native code libraries (for SWT, Eclipse's GUI toolkit, for example). You can run 32-bit native code on a 64-bit platform (at least, if you're using an Intel x86 processor), but if there's a 64-bit version available, why would you want to use the 32-bit version?
