You need to specify jdk compliance level. You do it either globally or at the project level.

I downloaded Eclipse Luna which has full support for Java 8, and it works beautifully, Eclipse Kepler just doesn't fully support Java 8 I think. But thank you.

Kepler required you to install update that added the Java 8 support.
