[Solved] Can't be resolved to a type


I have added to my pom.xml:


And when I try to use:

JLanguageTool langTool = new JLanguageTool(new BritishEnglish());

it shows: Cannot be resolved to a type.

I am not sure if another dependency is needed.


That’s the only dependency you need. languagetool-core is needed, but language-en will get that automatically. Is the text you posted really the complete error message? What IDE are you using, or is this on the command line?

Hi and thanks for the help.

Yes, this is the only and full error message:

BritishEnglish cannot be resolved to a type

I am using eclipse oxygen (4.7.0).

This sounds like Eclipse doesn’t realize you’ve updated your pom.xml or so. You could try Languages.getLanguageForShortCode("en-GB") instead of new BritishEnglish(). If that doesn’t help, I think this is more of an Eclipse/Maven issue than a LT issue.

Ok, thanks! It works now!
Probably something with maven update issue, I don’t know.

Where can I found the language abbreviations?
For example, in order to use AmericanEnglish?


Use java -jar languagetool-commandline.jar --list to get a list of language codes supported by LT.

Ok, thanks!
