Hi, I just have a question on version of Java, which compiler, etc. I'm working on software for general distribution & sale.|
Last time I tried Eclipse 2020-12, it installed and used OpenJDK 11 I believe. I had some graphics issues to reverted back to Eclipse 2020-3 using JDK 1.8.
I know that version is WAY old. So, I installed 2020-12 again thinking it would give me OpenJDK-11 again while I tried to resolve graphics issues. But it didn't do that - it was still using JDK 1.8. (because my project was set up for it? - But I thought 2020-12 needed 11 at least??)
So, I downloaded openJDK 15 and set it up as the compiler.
Should I stick to 1.8 compatibility?
When I tried others, like 15 or 11, my code had about a billion errors, it was finding multiple instances of the library.... dunno why???
In any case, should I stick with compiling with 15 with 1.8 compatibility??
Thanks for any answers you can give!
