  1. Help > Install New Software...
  2. enter the following URL into the 'Work with' field: http://download.eclipse.org/eclipse/updates/4.3-P-builds/
  3. select category 'Eclipse Java 8 Support (for Kepler SR2)'
  4. for faster install, deselect 'Contact all updates sites during install to find required software'
  5. click 'Next', click 'Next', accept the license, click 'Finish', restart Eclipse when asked...

  2. I hope you've sort things out with this issue so far, but don't you think that was sort of a bug? I could be wrong for certain, given I'm far cry from being an experienced with Java at all, but given this resource I'm using as a handbook in order to learn java explainjava.com/enable-java-chrome/ simple arrayList will be the answer, as Ronald noticed here before. But nevertheless, that's Java in a nuthshell: once you have a solution that works fine, but it won't work out under any circumstances for another person. But I think methods described in these call-it tutorials would come in use for you, so it worth to give a try at least
