I need to install a project into my local repository.

During mvn install I'm getting compilation error.

For some reason maven plugin tries to use Java 1.3.

executing mvn -v gives me this result:

paddy@paddy-laptop:~/workspace/plant_store_sdk$ mvn -version
Apache Maven 3.0.4
Maven home: /usr/share/maven
Java version: 1.7.0_45, vendor: Oracle Corporation
Java home: /usr/local/jdk1.7.0_45/jre
Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8
OS name: "linux", version: "3.11.0-15-generic", arch: "amd64", family: "unix"

How do I configure maven in order to get annotations running? I tried installing this project from IntelliJ, got the same error.

Cheers, and thanks for your help.


You need to modify your pom.xml and configure the maven compiler plugin.
