I’m currently trying to fiddle with images, specifically convert images from JPEG, WEBP, and BMP forms to PNG forms and my method uses the
javax.imageio.ImageIO class. When I tried importing it, Eclipse yelled that the package that the type was not accessible. I thought that was weird and went digging through StackOverflow on my own and found multiple answers saying I should remove and re-add the JRE. This didn’t work, somewhat unsurprisingly, but while looking through my build path I noticed that the JRE was missing the entire javax package. Is there a reason this could be? Is there a fix?
The exact error reads
The type javax.imageio.ImageIO is not accessible and the suggested edits ask me if I want to make class
ImageIO in package
I am using the latest build of Eclipse. My JDK is
java-16-openjdk-amd64. I am running Ubuntu 20.04. I built this app from the ground up, so I am not using Maven (unless Eclipse uses Maven by default).
I tried compiling a basic class in my command line and it worked for some reason, despite not working in Eclipse.
I would rather not revert my JDK to an older version if I don’t have to.
It turns out I was being just being an idiot. It turns out I had actually made this with a module without realizing it. All it took for me was to get rid of the module file.
