Hello. I am new to programming so I am deeply confused about this new terminology, but I have found a previous forum thread about this problem and tried following one of the solutions posted to no avail. (

I am using a macOS(v12), M1 chip and I just downloaded Eclipse so I'm assuming it's the latest version. I think I am using Java SRE 17.

I keep getting the error that java.awt is not accessible, so I tried Build Path > Configure Build Path > Add External JARs. When the window pops up to prompt me to select a JAR I don't have any. I'm not sure what folders I'm supposed to be looking in but all the ones I've checked don't have any jar files for me to add. I have no idea where to go from here. Do I need to download something first?

Much thanks in advance

If your program is modular, having in the root folder, edit your to have the line 'requires java.desktop;' between the braces.
