Eclipse Error When I Compile [message #1070865] Thu, 18 July 2013 21:04 Go to next message

I am working on a database project using Oracle Database. However, when I try to compile, I get an error. I have googled the error, and tried the solutions others proposed, such as re-installing eclipse, downloading the jdk, but that didn't resolve the issue. I also tried creating a simple "Hello World" program to check if the issue was with my particular database project, but I still got the same error with the Hello World Program. This is the error:

Usage: javaw [-options] class [args...]
(to execute a class)
or javaw [-options] -jar jarfile [args...]
(to execute a jar file)
where options include:
-d32 use a 32-bit data model if available
-d64 use a 64-bit data model if available
-server to select the "server" VM
-hotspot is a synonym for the "server" VM [deprecated]
The default VM is server.

-cp <class search path of directories and zip/jar files>
-classpath <class search path of directories and zip/jar files>
A ; separated list of directories, JAR archives,
and ZIP archives to search for class files.

see also, -agentlib:jdwp=help and -agentlib:hprof=help
-agentpath:<pathname>[=<options>]
load native agent library by full pathname
-javaagent:<jarpath>[=<options>]
load Java programming language agent, see java.lang.instrument
-splash:<imagepath>
show splash screen with specified image


How can I resolve this? Any help would be appreciated.

Can you provide more details on exactly what you are doing when you get this message. Compiling in Eclipse doesn't invoke an external instance of Java, so it would make sense that this message comes out when you try to compile unless you are trying to compile using an external program.

I used the words "compile" and "run" interchangeably in my message above. That was a mistake. I am creating a database project with eclipse using Java and SQL (as an imported java library). When I try to test what I've created, I hit "run", and get the error above.

After you've reproduced the error, go to the Debug View and right-click on the node in the tree that shows the path to your java.exe or javaw.exe and bring up the properties. That will allow you to see the command line that Eclipse invoked. Please reply with the full contents.

On the properties menu, this is what shows up:

"C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe" -Dfile.encoding=Cp1252
