    Default The import java.util.Scanner cannot be resolved

    Hi,
    I'm trying to change the version of Java that's running. When I do: update-alternatives --config java

    I get:

    There are 5 alternatives which provide `java'.

    1 /usr/bin/jamvm
    2 /usr/lib/jvm/java-1.5.0-sun/jre/bin/java
    3 /usr/bin/gij-wrapper-4.1
    + 4 /usr/lib/jvm/java-gcj/jre/bin/java
    * 5 /usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun/jre/bin/java



    When I try to compile a program with javac, I get:

    The import java.util.Scanner cannot be resolved and Scanner cannot be resolved to a type

    Any ideas?

    Default

    I had a similar problem and I resolved it doing :

    sudo update-alternatives --config javac

    and choosing the version that matches the JRE solves the problem.
