How to fix invalid target release: 1.7, 1.8, 1.9, or 1.10 Error in Maven Build

If you are building your Java project using Maven, maybe in Eclipse or from the command prompt by running mvn install and your build is failing with an error like "invalid target release: 1.7" or "invalid target release: 1.8" then you have come to the right place. In this article, I'll show you the reason why this error occurs and how you can deal with these errors even with higher Java version like Java 9, 10 installed on your machine, or maybe with Java 11 in the coming month. The root cause of the problem is that you have specified a higher Java version in your pom.xml file for Maven compiler plugin then what Maven knows in your system, and that's why it's saying invalid target release.

The Spring Security is one of the leading open source, security framework which allows you to implement security in Java based web applications.

Top 5 Free Java Courses for Beginners to Learn Online - Best of Lot

We all love free resources, don't you? There was a time when I buy a lot of books when I was preparing for my engineering entrance exam but I only ended up buying books not reading them. Afte that I changed my habit to first try to read a book on loan or trying free resource and only buying when I really need. When I started my programming journey, mostly I learn from free resources e.g. free courses and books and there I developed the passion to collect free resources as well.  I agree that paid resources are often better than free resources e.g. books and courses but if you are just starting your journey, it's the free resource which you should try first. Once you have some background and interest, you should consider buying a proper book or courses for comprehensive learning.

Top 5 Websites to Learn Coding in Java Online for FREE - Best of lot

Begin an author of a Java blog, I often receive questions like how to improve my coding skills?,  or how do I learn to code in Java?, or I am having difficulty solving programming problems, please help etc. This is mostly from programmers, who has just started programming or a graduate with programming degree or even some programmers with a year or two in Job. Like many other things in the world, to improve coding you need to code, code, and code - and to improve programming you need to write a program, and that's where many of these programmers fail. In 90% cases, they simply don't write enough program to develop programming logic and code sense and if without too much experience at data structures and algorithms, if they attempt problems given on sites like TopCoder, or Project Euler, they fail miserably.

Top 5 Free Git Courses for Programmers to Learn Online - Best of Lot

One of my goals in 2018 is to learn and master Git and I have been searching some good tutorials and courses to start with. The Internet is full of git tutorials and a simple Google search will leave you thousands of tutorials but the big question mark is where do you start? It's easy to pick a tutorial or a blog post if you have some background about what is Git, what it does? and how to use it but if you don't have much background then you need a course which can tell you all the information from the ground up. I personally like learning from a book or an online course before moving to blog posts as they were often well structured. When you search for Git courses in popular online course websites e.g. Udemy, Pluralsight or Coursera, you will find some good courses e.g. Git Complete: The Definitive Guide on Udemy and Git Fundamentals from Pluralsight which will teach you everything about Git step by step. These are excellent resources to start with Git.
