JadEclipse on linux mint with Eclipse Helios

Posted on 2010-09-18
Last Modified: 2013-12-15
I have Eclipse Helios on my Linux Mint 9 (Isadora), i have downloaded 'jad' and upacked it.

I have change the preference in Eclipse, Windows | Preferences | Java | JadEclipse so that the Path to the decompiler is set to  /home/me/development/lib/jad

However when i try to decompile a class file i get the following error message


I can run jad from the command line against the same class file and i get

Parsing ../workspace/test/bin/Test.class...The class file version is 50.0 (only 45.3, 46.0 and 47.0 are supported)
 Generating Test.jad

When i open Test.jad it looks good.

I cant understand why it wont work from Eclipse Helios.

Any ideas will really help

Do you mean that JadEclipse does not fully support Java6 or that JAD doesn't ?

Yeah i know that JAD doesn't support Java 5 onwards, but it still works on the command line

Runnin  jad from the command line against the same class file and i get

Parsing ../workspace/test/bin/Test.class...The class file version is 50.0 (only 45.3, 46.0 and 47.0 are supported)
 Generating Test.jad

you don't need an earlier jdk, you can use "-target 1.4 -source 1.4" compiler options
