[jitsi-dev] How to set up the compiler in Eclipse for JDK 8 (screenshots attached)


#1

This took me quite a bit of research, so I thought it might go into the
documentation

https://jitsi.org/Documentation/ConfigureEclipseNew

How to set up the compiler in Eclipse for JDK 8:

1. Window → Preferences → Java → Installed JREs

Add or Edit, depending on if jre8 is already on the list

Set JRE Home e.g. = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0\jre for Windows

Set Default VM Arguments: -Dbuild.compiler=javac1.7
