The following worked fine for me, using Eclipse 20110218-0911 (it's old) on OS X 10.9.5.

1. File->New->Java Project.
2. Name your project. I called it "MyProject"
3. Click Next >
4. Click Libraries tab
5. Click "Add External Jars..."
6. Add the mason.18.jar file.
7. Click Finish
8. Select "MyProject"
9. Run->Run As->Java Application
10. Select (for example) AntsForageWithUI
11. Press Okay

The AntsForageWithUI demo pops up no problem.

To run the 3D demos, add the 3D jars I provided in an earlier message.
If you want to do charts and graphs, etc., add the standard library jar files that come with MASON.
