Just starting out with Eclipse and Java and trying to do Mark Dexter's tutorials.

I'm stuck on MacOS X Tiger, so have to use Eclipse 3.3.2 which I've got up and running and have installed a number (maybe too many?) of extras/updates.

Have created a Person class in a package in a new project.
Have imported the spec into a Scrapbook page.

Enter the following:

Person p = new Person();
p

Highlight and hit Evaluate, gives me a new pane, entitle CodeSnippet_4.run()

with a nice red message "Source not found".

Just not sure what I might be missing here?

Any help would be appreciated so I can get back to the tutorial.

When I installed Helios, it pointed to existing workspace.
I moved Europa and all its stuff to a separate folder, then installed Helios carbon, set up new workspace, ran the tutorial and now it's working.

Thanks Dani, for your post which made me think it had to do with something I did/didn't do installing.

Just posting for any more noobs like me trying to find the solution to this problem:

This was appearing for me when I used ArrayList object (Lesson 9).

You may note that the "Problems" pane contains a warning about the Build Path Execution Environment is set as J2SE1.4 or something.

You need to change it to 1.6. To do that you need to do the following:

RightClick on your project -> Properties -> Java Compiler

There, you need to make sure:

1. Enable project specific settings is checked
2. Uncheck Use compliance from execution environment 'J2Se 1.4'....
3. Set "Compliance compliance level" to 1.6

Re-build your project and you're done. Proud

I've also encountered the "Source not found" error while inspecting statements in the Eclipse Scrapbook.

My resolution was to update the path in my Environment Variable list after upgrading to a newer version of Eclipse.

On a Win8.x system:
1. Open Control Panel\System and Security\System.
2. Select Advanced System Settings from the left.
3. From the Advanced tab, select Environment Variables at the bottom.
4. Select JAVA_HOME from system variables, and edit to your latest version folder.
5. Reboot to ensure new variables apply.
