Eclipse will not work if you do not have the JDK installed. :P

I would like to give my inputs on same that Eclipse need only JRE to run.
But there is some cases/plugins that are only working with JDK, such as Maven.
So if you are planning to use Maven (either from Console or from Eclipse) you will need to download JDK.

Not only MAVEN there are many plugins that need JDK.
