Here's the deal, I've created a project with java -version 1.7, (not so big, just a very basic calculator). I did this in my own PC, saved the files in the workspace, and then I copied them to my flashdrive.

In my classroom, there's only iMacs with Mac OSX 10.5.8.
What I do:


  • Copy project folder into workspace
  • Create a new project in Eclipse with the name of the folder
  • The project creates but I can't run it, it says something about JDK 1.7 (unbound)



the java -version in the iMac computer throws 1.5.

Could this be the problem?
Can I use my 1.5 library to open a 1.7 created project?
If so, how?

First: to transport a project the Eclipse way, you should let Eclipse do the copying, see http://help.eclipse.org/juno/topic/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/tasks-importproject.htm?cp=0_3_10_0

Second: the message you cite should tell you that JDT doesn't find a JDK 1.7 so the project has no Java runtime, so it can't run, surprised?
Simply edit the build path of the project to use a JRE that's actually present on the current machine: http://help.eclipse.org/juno/topic/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/reference/ref-properties-build-path.htm?cp=1_4_3_1 look for "Libraries tab" etc.


best,
Stephan

Hello, it's me again, I tried something new now: Created a different project but with the java library version 1.5.
iMacs in school now can Run it without any problem. Guess I'll have to go that way now.
Thank you!
