How to use compiler provided with JDK 1.4.1_02 in Eclipse [message #48756] Wed, 12 March 2003 14:09 Go to next message

I would like to use the compiler bundled with sun's JDK 1.4.1_02 to
compile my application in Eclipse. I think, Eclipse comes with its own
incremental compiler. I have following questions about it.

1) What's the difference between the Eclipse compiler and Sun's compiler?
2) I am kind of confused over compiler compliance level. There are two
compiler compliance level (1.3 & 1.4) in Eclipse. So if i use compliance
level 1.3, does it mean that Eclipse is using java 1.3 compiler (that
bundled with Eclipse) to comiple the application? And if i use compliance
level 1.4, does it mean that Eclipse is using java 1.4 compiler (that
bundled with Eclipse) to comiple the application?
3) If i would like to use Sun's Java compiler or IBM's Java compiler in
Eclipse, how could i do that?

Any type of help would be appreciated.


Thanks

For future reference, eclipse.tools is the place for this...

It is written in Java. It is incremental. It is integrated into the IDE.
It has more features. Etc.

The compliance level indicates "equivalence". 1.3.x compliance is "as if
you compiled with JDK 1.3.X" and 1.4 compliance is "as if you compiled with
JDK 1.4.x". So 1.4.X compliance means Eclipse .class files will run on a
JDK 1.4 JVM.

Only way is to use ANT.
