    Why are you using such an outdated version of java?

    I guess your teacher wants you to learn the difference between the version of java. Yes, there are changes which were made from version 4, 5, 6 and now 7. Anyways, can you please check the java properties in eclipse > windows > preferences. If you find something weird, then please let us know. Happy to help

    I was asking because I figured there could be some minimum JDK version for Eclipse, but I'm not finding any evidence to support my theory.
    What happens when you "try" to run it?

    Did you created a java project in eclipse and put the program under correct path. How do you run the program from eclipse? Do you right click > run as > java applicaiton?

    Can you please right click on the project and select properties. Then check for java build path. What do you find under libraries

    I hope you studied the resulting "fix" and noted the changes that Eclipse made for you so that you'll know how to do it right next time.
