Hi I'm just getting my head into building with buckminster. I need to build jdk5 compliant (old Mac users...) but due to a strange bug with jdk5 (I could google someone having the same one) buckminster fails to resolve a local resource with jdk5. so I switched buckminster to run on jdk6 and everything builds fine now. But I didn't find any hints on how to make the jdk6 buckminster do a jdk5 compliant build. Can someone give me pointers what would be the best way to do that ? I think I need to perform an install of the jre, but how do I set the compiler options ?

Any help will be appreciated, as always Smile

Regards Thomas

Hi Thomas,

you can enable the project specific compiler settings for this project
and set the 'Compiler compliance level' to 1.5 (open Context Menu of
the Project -> Properties -> Java Compiler). Buckminster will then use
these settings as well.
