Subject [jira] [Commented] (OFBIZ-6458) Upgrade OFBiz to Java JDK 8
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2015 11:43:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/OFBIZ-6458?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=14577061#comment-14577061

Taher Alkhateeb commented on OFBIZ-6458:
----------------------------------------

Hi Jacques,

The ECJ runs automatically whenever you fire-up eclipse. It is the continuous compiler that
catches errors in your code and helps with auto complete and everything else in an eclipse
Java project. So if you do not fix the error everything will run fine but you will have an
annoying error registered in OFBiz whenever you edit it with eclipse

BTW I think ECJ is actually more accurate than javac in this specific instance because it
follows a stricter syntax and I think that the design structure of eclipse is different from
Intellij IDEA in that it utilizes the builtin compiler instead of the JDK compiler but I did
not do enough research to validate this or ascertain the details.
