As there is no JRE installed, Eclipse would throw the following error,

Installed JRE location no longer exists. JRE will be removed.
Reason: JRE removed

So to resolve this issue, you need to download JRE dmg (from oracle website) and re-configure JRE with Eclipse.

/System/Library/Java/JavaVirtualMachines/1.6.0.jdk/Contents/Home

Go to Eclipse -> Preferences
