    Default Eclipse Compiler Level Tuning

    Hey Guys and Girls

    Just a quick question, as I cannot find any info myself - when using Eclipse, lets say I want to use the function

    System.out.format(...);

    Without having to mess around with the compiler settings for the current project, the code will not compile.
    However, by changing the default (which is V1.4) to V7 it will compile. This may seem very small of a gripe
    but it does become a pain when I have to keep changing the version with each new project.

    Oh and btw - the same problem with

    System.out.printf( ''' );


    My question is - is there an option in Eclipse to permanently set the compiler
    setting to V-7 ? I cannot find out how to do it in the Preferences menu. Is there something
    I am missing?
    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Wishes Ada xx

    Hey Greg

    Thanks for the speedy reply. I checked again under the auto search and it came up this time (maybe it was begging slow.)
    I had to keep clicking "Apply" because the software was not responding Grrrr.

    I set it under the preferences now under Preferences -> Java Compiler -> Compliance Level. Now set to 7! Yay!

    Thank you for the help
