Hi,

Recently, I downloaded the latest JDK which is jdk-8u151-windows-x64.exe.

I then proceeded to set the env variable to this JDK.

But, I want Eclipse NEON to point to this JDK as well.

When I tried to add it, Eclipse does not allow me to do so.

Can someone tell me how to go about pointing to this JDK?

Tks.

Hi there,

I'm not using Neon at the minute (currently using Mars) but you should have an option to add your new installation to the list of Installed JREs by doing the following.

Tools -> Preferences -> Expand the Java option -> Expand the Installed JREs option -> Add.

From there it should be straightforward.
