Custom Code compile exception

0 votes


I've downloaded the custom code sample and imported it into Eclipse. 

Since the code may not have copiled with Java 8, I also added the 7 JDK and selected it as my default java version.

Now the issue is when I try to compile and run the sample code (no additions done), I get the error "Exception in thread "main" java.lang.Exception: Please provide required arguments...apikey, secretkey, name, action at com.myapp.helper.AntHelper.main("

All these parameters exist in the build.proprties file, so why does it still not compile? Is it the Java version?

Hello Mariam,

Custom Code works with Java 7 as of now and that was the reason it did not compile when you tried using Java 8.

Please let me know if you have any further query, I will be happy to help you.

Hi Rajeev,

I have Java 7 & 8 both installed. But for compiling I have set the SDK version to 7.
The error still occurs.
Do I need to uninstall JDK 8?
