Setting javac options in Eclipse

I would like to use the javac encoding option :

javac -encoding utf8 NewMain.java

How do I set this option in Eclipse so that it compiles with that option ? Thanks.

Pretty strange, I tried to find these settings in Eclipse and nothing . Looks like you will need to compile the classes manually or with Ant/Maven build tools.

I think that you should be able to set this this as a VM option on your JRE settings (Menu Window/Preferences-Java/Installed JREs-Edit->Default VM Arguments)

Hi all,

My question is not limited to the
-encoding
javac option but other javac options as well.
(Although the encoding option is the one I want to use currently.)

Holloway, is what you wrote...about runtime (JRE) as oppose to compile time (javac) ? My question is for javac.

Thanks all for time and effort.

It's for places where Eclipse internally invokes "javac", not "java". You'd set Eclipse's own VM args on the eclipse command line, and for debugging, uou can set up whatever options you want on the debug profile you create.

eclipse uses its own compiler, not javac.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
