yum erase <package>
This will remove the package and anything dependent upon that package

Followed by "yum install <package>" to do a clean reinstall of the
package and verify all its dependencies.

I would guess that your "rpm --nodeps -e ..." command broke the database
dependencies.  You did not say whether you ran the 'rpm -qa | grep
eclipse' part of the command first to review what would be removed
before you did the removal.

You can try to reinstall each of the removed packages manually to fix
the missing pieces of the puzzle.
