ahhh.. thank you !

However. looking in my local .m2 repository, I only see these files:

$ ls -al 


I don't see anything in the pom file that looks like a java version 
property. I exploded the jar file, and it contains properties files. 
But, again, nothing that looks like a java version. Might it be embedded 
in the java code for the plugin ?

Is there a better way to compile the JSP files, and see error msgs?

thanks for your patience.
