#50 Example plugin has erroneous annotation

plugin (16)

Good day,

The ExamplePlugin has two methods which use the @Override annotation but the methods are not in the base class. This causes an error in Eclipse (well...certain configs anyway).

I have attached the patch for this.

    Hi Sean,

    We use Java 6 which allows you to annotate interface implementations with @Override. Can you check your Eclipse settings to ensure that the Java compliance level is set to Java 6 ?

    Hey Rob,

    OK, your note was right; the examples plugin had an entry in .classpath of J2SE-1.5 as its per-project compliance level. This is pretty odd since I have my workspace set up for 1.6 and this is a new workspace (and a new Eclipse environment, 3.6sp2). Switching it to a 1.6 compliance level fixed the issue.

    Now I just need to figure out why a few of the projects are coming out as Java 1.5 compliant.

    Thanks again and sorry for the bother,
