Installing Eclipse on FC4

I often use Eclipse when I develop Java-based software applications. Installing Eclipse on FC4 is easy! I don't normally do development on Eclipse itself, so I install everything except the *-devel packages:

$ sudo yum install `yum info eclipse\* | grep Name | cut -d: -f2 | grep -v devel`

Surprisingly, this installs 70 packages!

To run Eclipse, I select Applications/Programming/Eclipse. This Eclipse has an unusual splash screen, announcing itself as

Fedora Eclipse
Based on Eclipse 3.1.1

I haven't done much with it yet, but it looks right so far.
