Android requires compiler compliance level 5.0 or 6.0. Found '1.8' instead [message #1781246] Sun, 04 February 2018 21:56

I am developing an Android application using Eclipse.

Eclipse IDE for Java Developers
Version: Oxygen.2 Release (4.7.2)
Build id: 20171218-0600
OS: Linux, v.4.9.0-4-amd64, x86_64 / gtk 3.22.11, WebKit 2.16.6

In Window/Preferences:

Java compliance level ----> 1.8

Installed JREs - java-8-openjdk-amd64

When I set in my project properties the Java compiler entry to 1.8, and attempt to build the project, the build fails with the following message:

"Android requires compiler compliance level 5.0 or 6.0. Found '1.8' instead. Please use Android Tools > Fix Project Properties."

This happens regardless of the Android settings in project properties.

When I build the same project using Android Studio, there is no problem with the build (but I have other issues).

I would appreciate feedback about this, and ideas about a possible resolution. I need to use Java 8.

Thanks in advance,

Alex Donnini
