Subject Maven Version 3.0.4 compatibility with Java Version
Date Wed, 02 Oct 2013 03:45:01 GMT
   The maven version I am using is Maven 3.0.4.  When I try to compile a 
Java project, the error that states is "enums are not supported in 
-source 1.3
(use -source 5 or higher to enable enums)".

   My java version is JDK 7.0 and the JAVA_HOME variable is set 
correctly and part of the build path.

   I understand that the java version has to be configured in the 
pom.xml for the project to make use of JDK 7.0.
The clarification I needed is if Maven version 3.0.4 then isn't by 
default uses JDK 5.0 and above?
I don't need to change the value for each and every pom.xml for the 
projects that I work.
Please let me know if you have any workaround.
