Description thereisnospoon 2001-12-07 18:20:22 UTC
My project is about 80% Sun Java, put we have some packages that require MS Java.
It would be nice if I could assign a default compiler to those packages instead
of setting each file one at a time.
Comment 1 Svata Dedic 2001-12-07 18:56:41 UTC
BTW you can select all files in a package (left-click on the first 
one, shift-left click on the last) and change the Compiler property 
for all of them at once.
Comment 2 Marek Grummich 2002-07-22 10:09:48 UTC
Set target milestone to TBD
Comment 3 Jan Becicka 2002-08-06 11:10:47 UTC
New projects infrastructure could solve it, 
Comment 4 Svata Dedic 2002-12-04 08:42:32 UTC
UI rejected the request to assign a compiler to a directory. Although
the infrastructure is capable to handle it it will not be available
for use in 4.0.
Comment 5 Jesse Glick 2004-11-22 18:33:56 UTC
Do not plan to support from GUI, though in 4.0 it is possible to
configure your Ant script to do this.
