maven compile generic error

it is somewhat weird that Maven uses java1.3 for default compile.

So if you use generics or some other “new” features in the later java version, you will probably got such error :

could not parse error message: (use -source 5 or higher to enable annotations)

 

add the following to the pom xml to use the java 1.6 as compiler.

<build>
        <pluginManagement>
            <plugins>
                <plugin>
                    <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
                    <version>2.3.2</version>
                    <configuration>
                        <source>1.6</source>
                        <target>1.6</target>
                        <compilerArgument></compilerArgument>
                    </configuration>
                </plugin>
            </plugins>
        </pluginManagement>
    </build>
