maven-surefire - compile with -target 1.5 or greater
Last modified: 2012-07-27 04:47:48 EDT
Package maven-surefire appears to be using Java generics,
but generates class files in format older than 49.0,
which corresponds to J2SE 5.0, in which generics were introduced.
Please update this package to generate classes in format 49.0 or
above. This corresponds to -target 1.5 option of javac (or ecj).
For more information, see bug #842394
I've fixed up apache-parent to make all child packages target 1.5 so this can possibly fix other packages as well
