Hey! I am new to Java and new to eclipse.

I heard that eclipse is awesome for java programming so i wanted to try it out.
So first thing i started to follow a simple tutorial on youtube. Derek Banas tutorial series on Java.

Right off the bat the most simple code in the universe fails to work... I Can't figure out why. index.php/fa/22893/0/

Sorry for being the biggest noob in here... But I can't get stuck on something as stupid as this... help please!

Alexander,

You need to tell Eclipse where your JDK is. Window -> Preferences ->
Java -> Installed JREs.

After that, if it's still not working ('cause you should have done that
first thing before creating the project), if you still have trouble,
then right-click the project (sample java), choose Build Path ->
Configure Build Path -> Libraries -> Add Library... -> JRE System
Library. That should do it.


Hope this helps.

Didn't work. But might have helped. Depends. I've already told eclipse where my jdk is. index.php/fa/22896/0/

Maybe that particular jre won't work? I have eclipse indigo if that makes a difference... I tried configuring the build path and it looks like this now: index.php/fa/22897/0/

No luck so far

Did you check your Build Path Libraries to ensure the JRE System Library
is listed for the project?
