I need to compile my project with an old compiler (j2sdk1.4.2_18). However, Eclipse don't like to start up with 1.4.2. It compalins about incompabilities and wants to have at least 1.5.0.

How do I handle that?

as far as I know Eclipse works with any version of JDK
go to Window >> Preferences  and select Java and then Compiler
there is a "Compiler compliance level" you can change it to 5.0, 1.4 or even 1.3
