RantJava is giving me a splitting headache over a caret Pin

Java's split() behaves very weirdly. I was needing to split on a caret ^ and
"Test1^Test2".split("^")
was throwing an error. A quick google search says that special characters need to be escaped. No big deal, I do
"Test1^Test2".split("\\^")
and still same error (invalid escape sequence characters...)

I google for a java fiddle and test it in the fiddle and it works great. So, I check eclipse and find that I have java 1.8 so I include that in google.

Luckily I find a new response that says to use java.util.regex.Pattern.quote(). So, I try
"Test1^Test2".split(java.util.regex.Pattern.quote("^"));
and that actually works.

The documentation says string.split() has been around since Java 1.4 so why in the world would eclipse behave different than other java compilers?
