After I installed Java JDK 12 on my workstation and then updated Eclipse to version 2019-03 (plus the JDT Patch With Java 12 Support), changed the Java compiler compliance level to 12 and then endeavored to change the JRE to that within the JDK 12 folder.
But I couldn't find any JRE within the JDK 12 folder.
And Eclipse must have a compatible JRE for Java 12. Trying to use JRE 10.0.2 just won't work -- the configuration page sees the lack of compatibility straight off.

Anyone got any ideas on the JRE location within the JDK 12 folder ?

I believe that Oracle has stopped releasing JREs. They only release JDKs. Since a JDK provides all the features a JRE provides plus some extra development tools, you should be able to simply point to the JDK directory when you use The Add... feature. Java development in Eclipse works better if you point to a JDK vs a JRE.

Good idea. Works for all but projects with JavaFX library stuff needed.
But I'll figure that out tomorrow.

Thanks, man.
