To run and debug Dart applications natively, you must install a copy of Dartium (a Chromium build with a Dart VM) into Eclipse.

To install or update Dartium, first open the Eclipse Preferences dialog and go to the Dart > SDK page. Its Dartium section tells you:
Every time you update Dartium or the Dart plugin, you should also update the Dart SDK.
To update, go to the Preferences dialog’s Dart < SDK page, and click the Upgrade SDK button. That page also shows current version of the SDK that is installed.
