I want to use the assert stmt in eclipse.
assert dosomething();
The IDE does not seem to be recognizing this. How do I change my settings so that I can use this stmt?

Thanks.

You need to configure the complience level of the compiler in the Preferences.

Which Eclipse version are you using? 3.1 has a nice filter field in the preference dialog which should make it very easy to find the settings. Do you know how to get to the preference dialog?

Eclipse 3.1.
No, I don't know how to get to Preferences. When I first set up my project, I remember setting it to JDK 1.5 etc.
But I've forgotten how to do it. Can you please help me?

In the "window" menu, select "preferences...". In the upcoming dialog, select java, compiler in the tree. There you should find the compliance level setting somewhere.
