annotations are not supported in -source 1.3


Problem: I am using maven 3 and while building a war file, i got this error as one of my java class files has annotations.

annotations are not supported in -source 1.3

To avoid this error, add the below plugin to pom.xml

Solution:

<build>
<plugins>
<plugin>
<artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
<configuration>
<source>1.6</source>
<target>1.6</target>
</configuration>
</plugin>
</plugins>
</build>
