Subject Re: How to change the compiler target/source version?
Date Tue, 24 Jul 2012 20:25:18 GMT
Excellent, this works for me:
            <ea:property name="compile.java.target.version" value="1.6"/>
            <ea:property name="compile.java.source.version" value="1.6"/>

Yeah, having those plugin docs online (or the command line option) would
help a lot. :)

Thanks,
