The Eclipse JDT package in Sid (version 3.8) came out nearly 6.5 years
ago! I doubt it if it will work with Java 11 and I would even be
surprised if it worked with Java 8.
Sadly, Eclipse is one piece of software that I have just never been able
to find a satisfactory setup based on Debian packages. I recommend you
download the binary tarball from upstream, untar it in /opt and work
with it from there.
