While working with eclipse J2EE IDE on Mac OS X system running Yosemite Operating system, i got the following error message Syntax error, annotations are only available if source level is 1.5
I have configured JRE with Java version jre 1.8, to fix this issue,
- Right click on your project folder and select Properties
- Now click on Java Compiler
- Change the Java Compiler Compliance level to 1.7 or higher
- Apply changes
- Issue should be fixed.
Note that older versions of Eclipse IDEs do not support Java 8 version. You need to have Eclipse Kepler SR2 or Eclipse Luna versions for Java 8 support.
