No, it took me a long time to figure out how to set it up. But once you
know that it expects a /usr/bin/java binary to be available and that
when running that binary on some byte code it can access the
system property sun.boot.class.path which should point to a jar or zip
file containing the core classes in byte code format then it is really
easy to setup:

- Install native eclipse (and the dependencies) from the RPMs you
- Create a /usr/bin/java shell script containing to following:

        gij-ssa -Dsun.boot.class.path=/usr/share/java/libgcj-3.5-tree-ssa.jar $*
And you are done!

Just start using the new project -> java wizard
and new file -> class wizard and you have your Hello World program
running in seconds.
