>                 Key: MCOMPILER-430
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MCOMPILER-430
>             Project: Maven Compiler Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>            Reporter: Arend v. Reinersdorff
>            Priority: Major
>
> Setting the Java version is documented here:
> [https://maven.apache.org/plugins/maven-compiler-plugin/examples/set-compiler-source-and-target.html]
> Proposal for improvement:
>  # Make this documentation more prominent. This should be documented on the "Usage" page.
> In my experience, the Java version is set in every Maven project. Because the default
version of 1.6 is quite old and the default version is also not obvious.
>  # Make -release as the preferred way to set the Java version >= 9. Keep the documentation
of -source/-target for Java version <= 8
