I'm sure that I'm being very stupid here, and it's the end of the day, so I'll probably see the problem straight away tomorrow morning, but maybe someone will have a handy pointer...
I've written and built an application, compiling with version 5 of Java (using Eclipse). I've now decided/realised that I actually need it to run with 1.4, so have changed the compiler (in Preferences/Java/Compiler) to 1.4, and added and selected the 1.4.2 JDK (Preferences/Java/Installed JREs).
I got all the compile errors that I expected, and have fixed them all, but now when I try to run, I get:
From reading around I see suggestions that the problem is that my code is being built by the 1.5 compiler, but I'm trying to run it with a 1.4 JVM. Makes sense. So - the question is, how do I compile it with the 1.4 compiler? I'd have thought that one/both of the settings I mention above would have done it, but apparently not?
Any help greatly appreciated.
PS - I've tried cleaning the project, to no avail.
Did you check the Java Compiler settings under the Project -> Properties menu?

Thanks for the suggestion - it wasn't that (the 'enable project specific settings' checkbox was not checked), however, it *was* something stupid - I needed to rebuild a jar file that I was using. So much for working late...
