please dont use any IDE while preparing for SCJP. as of my experience the foll., prg., compiles & runs successfully in 'Eclipse editor'



when it's run on 'command prompt' the prg., doesn't compile. foll., error comes.



that's what we need. matter of fact i'm preparing for SCJP & have been using Eclipse editor. now, going to use notepad & command prompt.

Mine shows "The blank final field b may not have been initialized"

I have Eclipse 3.4 and JDK 1.5.0_15.

your right about not using eclipse for scjp work. I find netbeans ok though for non-classpath related work.
@jagan - you havn't stated what version of jre/eclipse your using, also check your jdk compiler compliance level

eclipse 3.3.1.1 & jdk 1.6.0_05 seems consistent in this situation

If you're preparing for the SCJP, I think you're much better off working in an environment that doesn't instantly flag potential errors for you. You need to develop your own ability to look at the code and recognize what -- if anything -- might be wrong.

Eclipse has its own built-in Java compiler (based on IBM's Jikes compiler). Ofcourse that compiler is supposed to be 100% compatible with Sun's compiler from the JDK, but like any big and complicated piece of software Eclipse isn't completely bugfree.

I'm using Eclipse everyday, and it's rare, but I've encountered situations once or twice where the Eclipse compiler would give an error while the JDK compiler would not or the other way around.

For preparing for SCJP, it's best to use Sun's compiler from the JDK.
