I have two related questions here.

1. How to achive cross compilation in eclipse.
i want to use Java 5.0 file and produce a target compatible to 1.3.1_19

2. Is there any performance gain if i do cross compilation like using Java 5.0 to compile for target compatibility as 1.3. Instead of using jdk 1.3 to compile.

Thanks in advance

1. Look at the Java Compiler Preferences. you should be able to set Compliance options there although not as specific as 1.3.1_19. Note this does not apply to J2EE. J2EE is controlled by a separate version preference.

2. I do not have an answer for this. One would think that performance would be at least as good if not better. You might try measuring performance yourself and/or comparing the bytecode generated.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
