You need to change your project compliance settings in eclipse to 1.5.
Goto project -> Properties -> Java Compiler

Enable Project specific settings check box
Under JDK compliance select 5.0 in all the dropdown boxes.

Also, note that you need to use Eclipse version 3.1 or newer if you want support for Java 1.5.
