This will happen when you have different JRE in your system.Check your PATH variable and check whether it is pointing to the Java which you have installed in your Linux Machine.

Most of the times this happens when you install Oracle like products which installs some other JRE and update the PATH environment variable without asking you.

Hi,
Thanks for your reply.As you've mentioned,I checked for java version in my linux machine.It shows java version "1.4.2"
which is already in that machine.Now i am having jdk1.6.0_04 in usr/java.I have set the path as /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04 in etc/profile .But now when i run the eclipse it shows the following error:

A Java Runtime Environment (JRE) or Java Development Kit (JDK)
must be available in order to run Eclipse. No Java virtual machine
was found after searching the following locations:
/usr/local/eclipse/jre/bin/java
java in your current PATH


what should i do now?please help me

You need to set the path to /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04/bin instead of /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04.
Your java and javac files can be found under /usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04/bin only.

You can do one more thing also,modify logon scripts or the script used to launch Eclipse so that Java is in the path. The following example assumes the BASH shell:

export PATH=/usr/java/jdk1.6.0_04/bin:$PATH as in your case.
