JDT Core options

JDT Core options control the behavior of core features such as the Java compiler, code formatter, code assist, and other core behaviors.  The APIs for accessing the options are defined in JavaCore.  Options can be accessed as a group as follows:

Options can also be accessed individually by a string name.

Options that can configure the severity of a compiler problem can also be found.

Options are stored as a hash table of all known configurable options with their values. Helper constants have been defined on JavaCore for each option ID and its possible constant values.

The following code fragment restores the value of all core options to their defaults except for one (COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION), which is set specifically.


   // Get the default options
   Hashtable options = JavaCore.getDefaultOptions();
   
   // Change the value of an option
   options.put(JavaCore.COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION, JavaCore.ERROR);
   
   // Set the new options
   JavaCore.setOptions(options);

The following code fragment keeps the value of the current options and modifies only one (COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION):


   // Get the current options
   Hashtable options = JavaCore.getOptions();
   
   // Change the value of an option
   options.put(JavaCore.COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION, JavaCore.ERROR);
   
   // Set the new options
   JavaCore.setOptions(options);

Project specific options

The values of options can be overridden per project using protocol in IJavaProject.

The following code fragment retrieves the value of an option (COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION) for a specific project in two different ways.  The boolean parameter controls whether only the project-specific options should be returned in a query or whether the project's option values should be merged with the values in JavaCore.


   // Get the project
   IJavaProject project = ...;

   // See if the value of an option has been set in this project
   String value = project.getOption(JavaCore.COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION, false);
   if (value == null) {
     // no specific option was set on the project
     ...
   }
   
   // Get the value of an option from this project.  Use the value from 
   // JavaCore value if none is specified for the project
   String value = project.getOption(JavaCore.COMPILER_PB_DEPRECATION, true);

JDT Core options descriptions

The following tables describe the available JDT Core options.  The option id is shown in parentheses and the default value is shown in bold italics.

Options categories

Compiler options

Description Values
Inline JSR Bytecode Instruction ( COMPILER_CODEGEN_INLINE_JSR_BYTECODE )
When enabled in conjunction with a Java target platform lesser than or equal to "1.4", the compiler will no longer generate JSR instructions, but rather inline corresponding subroutine code sequences (mostly corresponding to try finally blocks). The generated code will thus get bigger, but will load faster on virtual machines since the verification process is then much simpler. This mode is adding support for the Java Specification Request 202 to pre-"1.5" Java target platforms.
For a Java target platform greater than or equal to "1.5", the inlining of the JSR bytecode instruction is mandatory and this option is ignored.
ENABLED
DISABLED
Setting Target Java Platform ( COMPILER_CODEGEN_TARGET_PLATFORM )
For binary compatibility reason, .class files are tagged with VM versions that are defined for each level of the reference specification. The target Java platform specifies the minimum runtime level required to execute the generated class files.
The compliance, source and target levels must satisfy a set of constraints summarized in a compatibility table below.
VERSION_1_1
VERSION_1_2
VERSION_1_3
VERSION_1_4
VERSION_1_5
VERSION_1_6
VERSION_1_7
VERSION_CLDC_1_1
Preserving Unused Local Variables ( COMPILER_CODEGEN_UNUSED_LOCAL )
Unless requested to preserve unused local variables (i.e. never read), the compiler will optimize them out, potentially altering debugging. PRESERVE
OPTIMIZE_OUT
Setting Compliance Level ( COMPILER_COMPLIANCE )
Select the compliance level for the compiler, which will then behave according to the said level of the reference specification.
The compliance, source and target levels must satisfy a set of constraints summarized in a compatibility table below.
VERSION_1_3
VERSION_1_4
VERSION_1_5
VERSION_1_6
VERSION_1_7
Javadoc Comment Support ( COMPILER_DOC_COMMENT_SUPPORT )
When this support is disabled, the compiler will ignore all javadoc problems options settings and will not report any javadoc problem. It will also not find any reference in javadoc comment and DOM AST Javadoc node will be only a flat text instead of having structured tag elements. ENABLED
DISABLED
Generating Line Number Debug Attribute ( COMPILER_LINE_NUMBER_ATTR )
When generated, this attribute will enable source code highlighting in the debugger (.class file is then bigger). GENERATE
DO_NOT_GENERATE
Generating Local Variable Debug Attribute ( COMPILER_LOCAL_VARIABLE_ATTR )
When generated, this attribute will enable local variable names to be displayed in the debugger, only in places where variables are definitely assigned (.class file is then bigger). GENERATE
DO_NOT_GENERATE

When detecting a fatal error in source code, the compiler generates problem methods/types into the corresponding class files, in effect preventing the offending code from running until all issues get resolved.
When disabled, optional errors are only considered as warnings for code generation purposes, but they still carry an error indicator to make them more severe than regular warnings.
ENABLED
DISABLED
Reporting Field Declaration Hiding another Variable ( COMPILER_PB_FIELD_HIDING )
When enabled, the compiler will issue an error or a warning whenever a field declaration is hiding some field or local variable (either locally, inherited or defined in enclosing type). ERROR

Determine whether task tags are case-sensitive ( COMPILER_TASK_CASE_SENSITIVE )
When enabled, task tags are considered in a case-sensitive way. ENABLED
DISABLED
Define the Automatic Task Priorities ( COMPILER_TASK_PRIORITIES )

In parallel with the Automatic Task Tags, this list defines the priorities (high, normal or low) of the task markers issued by the compiler.
Possible priorities are " HIGH ", " NORMAL " or " LOW ".

{<priority>[,<priority>]*}.
Default value is "NORMAL,HIGH,
NORMAL"
Define the Automatic Task Tags ( COMPILER_TASK_TAGS )
When the tag list is not empty, the compiler will issue a task marker whenever it encounters one of the corresponding tags inside any comment in Java source code. Generated task messages will start with the tag, and range until the next line separator, comment ending, or tag.
When a given line of code bears multiple tags, each tag will be reported separately. Moreover, a tag immediately followed by another tag will be reported using the contents of the next non-empty tag of the line, if any.
Note that tasks messages are trimmed. If a tag is starting with a letter or digit, then it cannot be leaded by another letter or digit to be recognized ("fooToDo" will not be recognized as a task for tag "ToDo", but "foo#ToDo" will be detected for either tag "ToDo" or "#ToDo"). Respectively, a tag ending with a letter or digit cannot be followed by a letter or digit to be recognized ("ToDofoo" will not be recognized as a task for tag "ToDo", but "ToDo:foo" will be detected either for tag "ToDo" or "ToDo:").
{<tag>[,<tag>]*}.
Default value is "TODO,FIXME,
XXX"

The following table summarizes the compatible combinations of Java compliance, target and source levels (bold values are the defaults for each compliance level).

Compliance Target Source

Builder options

Description Values
Cleaning Output Folder(s) ( CORE_JAVA_BUILD_CLEAN_OUTPUT_FOLDER )
Indicate whether the JavaBuilder is allowed to clean the output folders when performing full build operations. CLEAN
IGNORE
Reporting Duplicate Resources ( CORE_JAVA_BUILD_DUPLICATE_RESOURCE )
Indicate the severity of the problem reported when more than one occurrence of a given resource is to be copied to the output location. ERROR
WARNING
Abort if Invalid Classpath ( CORE_JAVA_BUILD_INVALID_CLASSPATH )
Instruct the builder to abort if the classpath is invalid. ABORT
IGNORE
Computing Project Build Order ( CORE_JAVA_BUILD_ORDER )
Indicate whether JavaCore should enforce the project build order to be based on the classpath prerequisite chain. When requesting to compute, this takes over the platform default order (based on project references). COMPUTE
IGNORE
Recreate Modified class files in Output Folder ( CORE_JAVA_BUILD_RECREATE_MODIFIED_CLASS_FILES_IN_OUTPUT_FOLDER )
Indicate whether the JavaBuilder should check for any changes to .class files in the output folders while performing incremental build operations. If changes are detected to managed .class files, then a full build is performed, otherwise the changes are left as is. Tools further altering generated .class files, like optimizers, should ensure this option remains set to its default state of ignore. ENABLE
IGNORE
Specifying Filters for Resource Copying Control ( CORE_JAVA_BUILD_RESOURCE_COPY_FILTER )
Specify filters to control the resource copy process. (<name> is a file name pattern (only * wild-cards allowed) or the name of a folder which ends with '/'; any resource which name matches one or more of these patterns is not copied to the ouput folder.) {<name>[,<name>]*}.
