Eclipse Galileo

Hello everyone,

The latest version of Eclipse is out 🙂 Codename : Galileo. So be sure to grab it on :
If You’re on Mac OS X : Leopard, You will prefer the Cocoa version of the IDE 🙂

Then, let me give You a little tip : if You’re on Mac OS X, and even if You’ve setted up the JDK 1.6 by default, Eclipse won’t recognize it, and will still use the JDK 1.5. So to change that, go to the Preferences of Eclipse and then to Java, Installed JREs. You should be there :

So click on the Add button. In the new window, select MacOS X VM as JRE type. Click next and now enter something like this in the JRE Home text field : /System/Library/Frameworks/JavaVM.framework/Versions/1.6.0/Home
Right, You’ve done the most tough part of it 🙂
Enter an explicit name like JRE 1.6 for example and hit the Finish button. Now You just have to select the new JRE in the list.
Now under the Installed JREs node, select Your execution environment as shown bellow :

Well, it will soon be ok 🙂 Just setup the compiler now. Go under Java, Compiler and select 1.6 in the list, as shown bellow :

That’s all 🙂
