I have encountered some java8-related code in a maven project that compiles with the javac compiler, but gives compilation-errors in Eclipse (ECJ compiler differ from javac, I suppose).

I'm importing it in Eclipse-Luna with: Import => Maven => Existsing Maven Project

As a quick fix, is there a way to make Eclipse use javac in a maven-project (thus disabling the ECJ-compiler)?

You can always deselect "Project > Build Automatically", but the editor will of course still show the error (there's no way to let the editor use javac).

OTOH, it would be great if you could extract a reproducing example and file a bug so we can analyse whether indeed this is a bug in ecj, or if javac accepts illegal source code.

I also posted the question here with a demo-example of the compiler-problem:

stackoverflow.com/questions/25544352/configure-eclipse-to-compile-with-javac-instead-of-ecj

Got answer it's already known bug, and has been fixed, but official release still pending...
