I am new to this forum so hopefully im in the right section.

I have been using Netbeans IDE for JSP development(no issues) but switched to Eclipse Kepler. But i have an error where Eclipse Kepler says
"There is an error in invoking javac. A full JDK (not just JRE) is required"

I have downloaded and installed the JDK from
"h t t p ://"
And been in Eclipse and select the jdk Window -> Preferences -> Java -> Installed JREs and selected the jdk from the path C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\jre.

The path C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51 was not good enough since Eclipse could not see it as the root of the directory.

What do i do? It seems no matter what i do then Eclipse wont work with my JSP pages and the local server inside the program. But normal Java console programs have no JDK issues.

Hope that someone can help me.
Thanks on advance
Kind regards.

For setting up an Installed JRE using a JDK installation, always use the root of the jDK installation and not the coincidentally-named "jre" directory within it. What action on your part prompted the message about requiring a full JDK?
