Maven Compile error

Maven Compile Plugin by default uses version 2.0.2 and JDK1.3 as the target for the compilation of Java code if you do not specify the compiler plugin version and the Java source & target versions. Due to this, you may get the below error when compiling:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-compiler-plugin:2.0.2:compile (default-compile) on project scratch: Compilation failure
[ERROR] /home/projects/java/scratch/src/main/java/com/test/MavenCompileTest.java:[50,26] error: for-each loops are not supported in -source 1.3

To resolve this problem, you need to specify the compiler plugin version and the Java -source and -target versions in the pom.xml of your project as below:


  
    
      org.apache.maven.plugins
      maven-compiler-plugin
      3.1
      
        1.7
        1.7
      
    
  


You can figure out the latest version of the Compiler Plugin by reading the version number on the top right of the Compiler Plugin page.
