Eclipse on iPad

Is it possible to install the eclipse developer bundle on an iPad Air? Currently I just get a failed win zip download screen when I use the links...

i highly doubt (but I could be wrong) you could install eclipse onto an iPad. the only way would be if they had an eclipse app for iPad, but they dont. If you really want to develop on your iPad (which probably is not the way to go), you would probably have to remote into a computer that has eclipse running and use that.

Even if you could install Eclipse you'd still have to compile any Java you wrote.

However, using an online IDE could work.
