For three years running I have been using IntelliJ without a problem to recompile about a dozen servlets from time to time. I had help in getting IntelliJ set up for this. But now it tells me:
- Using Javac 1.6.0_65 to compile Java sources.
- Error: Java: JavacTask: source release 1.6 requires target release 1.6
A day's struggle hasn't solved the problem. It was almost certainly caused by a recent upgrade to IntelliJ 13 (on Mac OS 10.9). Since my knowledge of IntelliJ is limited, I would appreciate expert guidance. (Neither Ant nor Maven is installed.)
Related question: I also need to move from Java 5 to Java 6 in IntelliJ to remain in sync with the Java in the Oracle I'm working with. Exactly what files need to be downloaded? From where? Where do they go in the OS X file system?
Thanks in advance,
I'm not sure this is appropriate, but in the interest of full disclosure I am attaching my IntelliJ settings.
