Maxim, you shouldn't have to change the encoding. The workbench should pick up the coding automatically from the file itself. Also, the default encoding as far as I know is CP1252. What problem are you seeing that you need to resolve? Joe

Hi. I want to be able to write String in other languages not from Latin1 group(Russian or Hebrew for example) inside my source code. Java compiler has a parameter -encoding that supposed to handle this situation. But I don't know how to add/edit parameters for javac from eclipse. Thanks in advance. Maxim.
Eclipse doesn't use javac, but its own iternal compiler. Options can be set in the Preferences (Java/Compiler). Don't know about encoding, though.

I don't really know about encoding Hebrew text in a source file. In general, though, you might want to consider using resource bundles for static text. That will avoid this sort of problem. If, however, you really need to be able to enter Hebrew text within the editor, this may help. I found it by searching on "text encoding" in the Help text: "To change the encoding used by the Java editor to display source files: With the Java editor open, select Edit > Encoding from the menu bar Select an encoding from the menu or select Others and, in the dialog that appears, type in the encoding's name.
Note: this setting affects only the way the source is presented.
To change the encoding that the Java editor uses when saving files, specify a text file encoding preference on Window > Preferences > Workbench > Editors." I hope this helps a little. Joe

Thanks guys. You are right, it helps a little. And it leads me to the next question: Can I force the Eclipse to use external java compiler and not the internal one? Thanks in advance. Maxim.

No. You *could* disable Eclipses autobuild feature and use Ant to compile your classes, though. But you would loose some of the cooler features of eclipse doing so, like incremental compiling.
