Buildship 1.0.9 is now available

Buildship 1.0.9 is now available. It brings support for Java compiler compliance settings and a new ‘clean import’ feature.

Buildship 1.0.9 is based on Gradle 2.11 which brings many enhancements itself.

Java compiler compliance settings

Buildship now reads the Java compiler compliance settings:

apply plugin: 'java'    

sourceCompatibility = '1.6'
targetCompatibility = '1.7'

And configures the following JDT settings accordingly:

  • Compiler compliance level
  • Source compatibility
  • .class files compatibility
  • JRE on the classpath

Note that this feature is only supported for projects using target Gradle version 2.11 or higher.

Clean Import

When importing a Gradle project into Eclipse, Buildship will now offer to overwrite existing .project and .classpath files, so that the configuration matches exactly what is specified in the Gradle build.

Buildship 1.0.9 is available at the Eclipse Marketplace or at the update sites. Users with Buildship already installed can automatically update to the latest version.
