Hi,

after a 3-4 month break, I decided to write a java program and opened Eclipse. The code is:
Reader in = new FileReader("foo.in");

And Eclipse tells that type mismatch: cannot convert from filereader to reader.

I work with java 1.4.2.
This is a very fundamental mistake. Can it be a bug?

thanks in advance...

1. Make sure you are actually using 1.4 in your project settings
2. Make sure there is no other FileReader or Reader class in your classpath.
These must be java.io.Reader and java.io.FileReader

Hi,

thank you for your quick response. I only have JRE for 1.4.2 on my build path libraries. The different thing is I only installed J2EE 1.4.2 and selected the directory of the JRE taht comes with it: C:\Sun\AppServer\jdk\jre

but i couldnot see anything abnormal. By the way it is appearent that this is not an Eclipse bug but what may be the mistake in my environment?

Look at your imports. Which Reader and FileReader classes are you importing?

Just out of curiosity, what was the problem?
