    Default How to configure Eclipse to use a specific JRE?

    I have both JDK 7 and JDK 6 installed on my computer. I want to set my project to use JDK 6 instead of 7, so my compiled program will be able to run on computers JRE 6.

    I know I need to go to Project > properties > Java Compiler > Compiler compliance level, and set it to 1.6.

    But I also need to set some things in Eclipse to use JRE 6. How exactly can I do that? Thanks
