This error depends upon the java syntax and rules, during the coding phase. In the further sections, we will learn why this type of error occurs and how to solve this error.

Reason:

“Error: java: javactask: source release 8 requires target release 1.8” is an error that occurs on the developer's screen when incorrect version information of java compiler is entered in the code.

The problem occurs due to the incorrect version of java source and target release configuration while using the java project development software tool such as Intellij, IDEA, or Apache Maven.

Solution:

In order to fix the java code error on your system, simply make the changes in the required code which is given as;

IntelliJ IDEA, IDE:

If you are using IntelliJ IDEA, IDE follow the solution given below;

  • Go to File -> Settings -> Build, Execution , Deployment -> Compiler -> Java Compiler.
  • Change the “target bytecode version” to 1.8 of the module that you are working for.
  • Save the changes and re-launch the tool to save the effects.

Apache Maven:

While using the Apache Maven tool, editing the java compiler with the correct versions can easily help to solve the problem. Apache Maven is based on the project object model, where you are only required to add the compiler plug-in to pom.xml under the top-level project node.
