What exactly do you mean by "support"? The latest version (JUno) can
generate class files that are compatible with 1.2.

You need to uncheck 'Use default compliance' on the compiler page and on
the 'Installed JREs' you can install your 1.2 (or whatever) JRE. Note
though that for starting the latest Eclipse IDE you will need JRE 1.6 or
higher.

Leonidas,

It looks to me that the latest Eclipse, which itself needs 1.6 to run,
allows you to install any JRE via Window->Preferences->Java->Installed
JREs. I suppose you'll want to make that 1.2 JRE your default. In the
Window->Preferences->Java->Compiler you can uncheck "Use default
compliance settings and pick 1.2 for "Generated .class files
compatibility" and "1.3" for "Source compatibility"; I suppose there
were source language changes between 1.2 and 1.3. That should do the
trick I think. Don't confuse the JRE the IDE needs to install, with the
JRE you want to target when developing Java code in that IDE.

JDT has its own built-in incremental compiler. It does the compilation
and uses the preferences I pointed out.

The JRE used to run the application depends on the JRE you have
configured/installed for use the the IDE, again using the preference I
pointed out.
> Where look for supported jdk/jre?
All are supported.
> if install 1.2 (run when choose only default 1.6) it will seem?
I can't make sense of this question. Have you tried to follow any of
the instructions you've been given?
