Use the following version of eclipse or the prior version of eclipse. don’t use the latest version of the eclipse because the latest version of eclipse expecting to install java 11. If you are using Java 11 you can use the latest version of eclipse. I have not tested a Billing System using Java 11.

MySQL
I have installed MySQL 8.0.21 Community Server. If you are using a prior version of MySQL, it is fine but Don’t go prior to version 5

PostMan or any other Rest client
After a successful setup, you need to test the Rest Webservice call. In order to test the Rest Service, we need any Rest Client. I am using the PostMan Rest client to test all Billing System endpoints. I am recommending to install PostMan. If you are familiar with any other Rest Client, you can go with that.

Optionally you have to install maven because Maven is coming along with Eclipse and IntelliJ. if you want to run the build command in the command line, you have to download the latest version of Maven from the following site.
