Hi,

I created one dynamic webproject (say testweb) to run a sample jsf application got error like error like need jdk1.6 etc while compiling itseld.
step1: I went to eclipse windows preferances -->general--->java--->compiler-->compiler compliance level i gave as 1.6 in the drop down.

But still it used give error like need jdk1.6 etc.

step2: When i went testweb project right clicked and properties-->java compiler-->java compilance level to 1.6 from 1.5 then it fixed the error.

My question is when i did step1 i thought it will set jdk to all projects globally but it did not unless and until I did step2 specifically for this individual project. I am bit confused. Can you please advise. any ideas, sample code, resources, highly appreciated. thanks in advance

That would sit better on our IDEs forum. Moving.

Step 1 sets the default JDK which is used for new projects - it does not update the JDK used for existing projects.
