After changing JDK version when next time I opened my Eclipse Workspace I noticed so many environment errors because Eclipse was not able to find version 1.8 as it wasn’t my default JDK version for Eclipse. In addition to that Apache Tomcat was giving me an error
The JRE could not be found. Edit the server and change the JRE location as mentioned in above diagram.
Well, there is a simple solution: just change JRE for each project and Tomcat. But what if you have
so many projects in Eclipse workspace? You need to change JRE for each project separately. It’s
kind of inconvenient to change setting for each project.
It’s always good idea to use
Eclipse Default JRE for all of your projects. So, if you change your JRE version in the future then you have to just update your default JRE
only once and all your projects will get updated.
Now let’s take a look at steps to change default JRE:
- Go to
- Go to Java -> Installed JREs
- Add new JRE and click
checkboxto make that JRE default
- Once done. Click on
Project -> Clean(Make sure you follow Pro Tips mentioned above)
- All your projects error should go away
How to fix an error for Apache Tomcat?
- Go to
- Search for
- Click on
- Select Apache
Tomcat 8-> click
- Change JRE to Workbench default JRE or jdk1.7.0_79
- Click on Finish and your error should go away by now
