the FSD is usually the easiest way to answer that question


if the program is listed in the FSD, then it has been reviewed
and deemed acceptable by someone of the FSD team

if not, then the FSDG would forbid us from helping anyone to
install it

java programs generally do not fit well into distros; so
although it is a popular program, it does not surprise me that it
is not in the repos - if you want to use it, you would either get
the binary from the eclipse website, get the source code from
the eclipse website and compile it, or maybe you could find a
PKGBUILD for it on the AUR
