Im a newcomer to the Blackberry Development world and still trying to setup the correct environment.
I have installed three different Eclipse versions or packages, few months ago I had installed the "Europa" version for other purposes, and when I came to Blackberry developers community I downloaded and installed the "Galileo" (Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, Build id: 20090619-0625).
I started testing java development, then wanted to try web development and downloaded and installed Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, Version: Helios (Release, Build id: 20100617-1415).
The problem: When I start Eclipse Helios for WebWorks I get this error:

To confirm, the latest version of the BlackBerry WebWorks Plug-in for Eclipse is v2.5.1 (build 201010291444-2) and is for Eclipse Helios. The WebWorks component used by this plug-in has a dependency on the Java Development Kit v1.6.
Can you verify that you have the Java Development Kit (JDK) installed, and not the Java Runtime Environment (JRE)?

I'm also having trouble installing WebWorks SDK...
I have JDK 1.6.0_24 (latest) installed, with JAVA_HOME pointing to it.
I'm on Windows 7.
I keep getting this from the installer. How do I get the installer to know that I DO have the latest JDK?

Check your Windows PATH environment variable. It may be that an older version of Java is referenced in the PATH. The HOME variable may have a similar problem. May not be much, but its the best idea I have at the moment.

Did anyone ever manage to fix this? I am having the same problem. I can open a command window, and type javac -version and I get javac 1.6.0_24 - That tells me it is correctly setup in the PATH variable.
Any other suggestions anybody?
I am using 32bit XP pro. The error message is
Javac 1.6.0 or above, which is required to build BlackBerry WebWorks application, is not found in your system.

Thanks for your reply.
I think I have done this already- does the fact that I can open a command window at any location, and use javac without its full path not confirm that my JDK is correctly set in the path?
I have verified that the PATH is set correctly (in my case, it is C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_24\bin)
Any other ideas? I have also noticed under the settings screen for the WebWorks plugin, there are no device emulators listed - and none can be found. I do have the SDK installed, (I have been using the command line and ant load-simulator up until now).
Any other suggestions?

I encountered the same issue on Windows XP today with the same update of the Sun JDK 6. Is the WebWorks SDK (setup.exe) install attempting to use something beyond the Java version to verfiy installation of the Sun JDK? JAVA_HOME and PATH are set to the correct location as system environment variables.
Has anyone else gotten it to work with update 24 of the JDK?

Hi I have managed to fix the issue on my system.
Before I had installed the plugin manually following a set of instructions (http://us.blackberry.com/developers/browserdev/ecl
I decided to uninstall EVERYTHING BlackBerry related, and then started again, using the combined installer found at http://us.blackberry.com/developers/browserdev/ecl
It installs another copy of Eclipse, which meant all my other plugins needed to be reinstalled. Boo
So uninstall all your eclpse plugins and Blackberry SDKs, and install again using the link above (make sure you log in before going to that link, otherwise when you click to log in you get taken to a different page which lists a different download. The file you want is BlackBerry_Web_Tools_188.8.131.52010291444-2.exe and is 535.896 MB. It worked for me.
And yes I am using Java 1.6 Update 24.
