    Default How to upgrade ECLIPSE to JAVA 7

    Hello,
    I just upgraded from JAVA 6.30 to JAVA 7.3, but my ECLIPSE 3.8 sticks to JAVA 6 (1.6).
    Should I throw away all .metadata and start all over again importing all of my projects
    or is there a way to make ECLIPSE aware of JAVA 7 (1.7) for all projects?
    ;JOOP!

    Hi,
    click Windows on menu bar --> show view --> project explorer
    project explorer opens
    on project explorer, right click on ur project name and click properties
    a dialog box appears with title "properties for *ur project's name*"
    click 'java build path' on ur left side pane
    then click the tab 'libraries'
    it lists out some libraries
    select JRE system libraries
    click 'edit' button
    there u can choose ur favourite environment

    kind[you will like this word, I'm copying this word from Jos, so mostly u should click 'like' button for me] regards

    Your answer is so right.
    Pity that I had to do this for half of my running projects.
    I wonder why those stuck to the 1.6 library that already was removed.
    Anyway ... I can now enjoy the complaints from the compiler, because 1.7 is a little more strict.
    Thanks!
