If pip finds the CPython installation, then almost certainly you have run the copy of pip that comes with CPython. I tried this myself and it seemed to install ok. Sorry, this is Windows PowerShell, but you'll be able to translate ...

PS issue2637> java -jar D:\InstKits\\jython-installer-2.7.1.jar

... here I specified it should install in .\inst, to keep it separate from any other Jythons.

... You can check which pip you get with:

PS issue2637> pip -V

On Windows this leaves me with a jybot.bat in .\inst\bin which seems to be the Jython-specific launcher. I can at least run --help at this point, but didn't try any real work. No doubt it is slightly different on a Mac. I'm not sure how Eclipse connects to this, but it will clearly be important that it too finds the right installation of robot and invokes it with Jython, not CPython.

If that has answered it for you, I'll mark this as not a bug and close.
