Java Question

How do you specify the Java compiler version in a pom.xml file?

I wrote a maven code on netbeans that has approximately more than 2000 lines. When I compile it on netbeans, everything is fine, but if I want to run it on command line, I will get these errors:

generics are not supported in -source 1.3
(use -source 5 or higher to enable generics)
ArrayList<ArrayList<Integer>> list = new ArrayList<ArrayList<Integer>>();

generics are not supported in -source 1.3
(use -source 5 or higher to enable generics)
HashSet<Double> resid_List = new HashSet<Double>(Arrays.asList(resid_val));

generics are not supported in -source 1.3
(use -source 5 or higher to enable generics)
List<Integer> ind_ovlpList = new ArrayList<Integer>(Arrays.asList(ind_ovlp));

generics are not supported in -source 1.3
(use -source 5 or higher to enable generics)
public class ColumnComparator implements Comparator<double[]> {

annotations are not supported in -source 1.3
(use -source 5 or higher to enable annotations)
@Override


I tried to use Java 1.3.1, compiler errors ,but I got more errors. I found from other posts that I should modify pom.xml, but I do not know how. Here is my pom.xml

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"

It would be great if you can help me.

<project>

      <plugin>
        <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
        <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
        <version>(whatever version is current)</version>
        <configuration>
          <!-- or whatever version you use -->
          <source>1.7</source>
          <target>1.7</target>
        </configuration>
      </plugin>
    </plugins>
    [...]
  </build>
  [...]
</project>

See the config page for the maven compiler plugin:

http://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-compiler-plugin/examples/set-compiler-source-and-target.html

Oh, and: don't use Java 1.3.x, current versions are Java 1.7.x or 1.8.x
