ArrayList Generic problem?

Hi all

I am trying to compile this in Eclipse 3.1


Eclipse is saying parameterized types are only availble if source level is 5.0. I downloaded jdk 1.5.0_06 and put it on my path. Am I missing something else?

Thanks,

AMD

I think Eclipse uses its own version of a compiler. You should check the documentation to see how to specify that you want use 1.5

There are some Eclipse settings you might need to change. Under Preferences > Java > Compiler, make sure that the JDK Compliance settings are all at 5.0.

Let us know if this fixes the problem.
