----------------------------------------------------------------

Can you elaborate on your use case some more? For instance, the Ant Plugin already extracts
the source/target values from the Maven Compiler Plugin. If that isn't working for you, could
you provide an example POM to reproduce?

In general, I wonder how much sense it makes to allow customization of the source/target values
via properties. I mean these aren't user-specific settings so I would like to understand the
need to override them via properties. 

I also don't quite understand the intention of your patch. It's merely replacing the actual
default values with properties but if the default values aren't used, the properties won't
be used either. So I'm really not sure what you're trying to solve.

> As of right now, mvn ant:ant generates a hard coded value for the source & target
for the javac command.
> Is it possible to:
> -  Customize this value through properties?

> -  See if there is a maven plugin [maven-compiler-plugin] and use that source and target.
