Description Jiri Prox 2013-10-08 12:14:20 UTC
The type browser inn change method parameter lists all types from all registered java platform. The user can select type which is not available in the current project java platform. In this case there is message 'Cannot resolve the type XXX for variable ....' but it is hard to find the real cause of this problem.

Steps to reproduce:
1) have two java platform jdk7 and jdk8
2) open project using jdk7
3) call Change method parameter
4) add parameter, click on type browser
(-> most types are listed twice, which may also puzzle the user)
5) select FunctionalInterface 

-> the error message is displayed

BTW. Add Property (in insert code menu) handles more jdk platforms correctly
