I've been following:
I purposefully am have installed and tried to setup Eclipse Kepler and JDK 1.6 the 2 prerequisites:
* At least JDK 1.6
* A recent Eclipse (4.3.1 Kepler SR1 at the time of this writing)
I get the below error when I do the build.xml ant make-and-deply:
C:\Users\Chad\jitsi.org\jitsi\build.xml:486: Class not found: javac1.8
Total time: 883 milliseconds
<< I assume this is because somewhere the project is still pointing to JDK 1.8? An update on the tutorials would help a ton...I have tried all 3 and found errors in each. I am used to using Visual Studio and Mono Develop...these other IDE's are new to me.
Thank you for your help.
<<Alright I actually thought I would go the extra mile with this setup, and try a few more things before sending.
I found that if I right clicked on make-and-deploy, I could choose External Config tools...and in there switch to JRE6. I also tried JRE7.
I now get:

Perhaps JAVA_HOME does not point to the JDK.
It is currently set to "C:\Program Files\Java\jre6"

<<<<Alright, my last ditch efforts proved successful it looks like...
Pointing things at jdk1.6.0_45 resulted in this...

Hopefully the above info can go towards making a slight improvement on the tutorial...I would be happy to adjust and commit in github if it helps.
Two final notes, as I have now built and executed Jitsi all from source (ya!) it might be useful to mention that after you have make-and-deployed and such...that to get the gui to appear you need to choose the ant button in Eclipse and that is where you choose your custom config'd Debug_SIPCommunicator.
Anyways, the tutorial did serve it's purpose to get me through the setup. Thank you Brian B. and other authors for the time spent on these...it is really valuable for attracting new developers to help grow the product. Now to look at the GUI tutorial...be afraid, be very afraid
