As i know, the long has length is 64 bits, range from "9,223,372,036,854,775,808 to 9,223,372,036,854,775,807. But in eclipse, when i type "long a = 9999999999" (10 digits), editor of eclipse displays errors at this line, why?

Even though assigned to a long, 9999999999 is still an integer literal. If you write 9999999999L instrad it should work.
