On Linux you would typically create a shell script that sets these
enviornment variables and then launches Eclipse and you would make that
script the launcher. I think it is also possible to pass these parms to
the Eclipse launcher. On OS X, I think you can edit a .plist file, or
something to get at the arguments passed to Eclipse at startup.

Also are you using the JavaHL adapter? If not, you should be. See the
FAQ for how to get it:


Finally, see this thread in the mailing list. It is someone that solved
this problem on OS X.
