No, aptitude install eclipse is the way to do it.  It takes care of 
Java.  Looks like Debian is using 1.5 at the moment.  I don't know that 
there are any distros that give you "stable" and "new" together.

If Ubuntu doesn't package eclipse you should package it for them. 
Installing from source is a waste of time since no one else benefits 
from your efforts.  (OK, sorry for the soapbox.)
