No, it's a quite simple configuration with Maven. However, you have to be 
prepared for users running into problems using the resulting jar file:

1/ in Android, because the Dalvik compiler is not able to convert the 
classes targeting Java 8

2/ in Web/App Servers running with Java 7 or below that scan the libraries 
in the classpath for annotations
