Problem setting up Eclipse on Mac

Hello, I am trying to setup the SDK on Eclipse on my Mac but am struggling to get it to work. The main problem is I have no experience of setting up a Java envirnoment and don't understand some of the steps on the guidehttp://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Alfresco_SDK_3.4

The parts I didn't understand are in bold.


Reviewing the steps on the guide:

1 JDK 1.6 - check
  Eclipse IDE - check
My SQL - I assume I don't require this as it's installed with Alfresco CE. Do I need a separate database for the SDK ?

2 Download the Alfresco Community Edition Release - check, version 3.4.d installed and working on localhost.

3 Download the Alfresco SDK The SDK bundle - check, downloaded alfresco-community-sdk-3.4.d.zip from http://wiki.alfresco.com/wiki/Community_file_list_3.4.d

4 Unpack the downloaded package to a file system folder of your choice- check, though I note the /extras folder is not there

Getting Started

Install 3.4 Community Edition Alfresco - done

Set Eclipse Compiler Compliance Level to 6.0 - done

Handle finding Win32NetBios or Win64NetBios. Add the alfresco bin folder to the system PATH - I have no idea how to do this

Import the Alfresco Eclipse Projects - done

Modify Projects to run against Alfresco CE installation. I don't know what's required here - do I just change the alfresco-global.properties in SDK AlfrescoEmbedded, etc with the file from the Alfresco CE installation ?

Fix Issues Identified Already - I haven't got a clue what this is referring to

Associate source code and Javadocs with Alfresco Libraries (optional) - done for SDK AlfrescoEmbedded, alfresco-core.jar, alfresco-remote-api.jar, alfresco-web-client.jar and alfresco-web-service-client.jar, only sources are available. Not done for alfresco-share.jar, I dont know where this jar file is

Running your first Alfresco Client: on Eclipse I selected the SDK FirstFoundationClient project and selected Run As Java Application which spat out the following errors:
