When I tried compiling my codes, I got a warning saying that string in switch is not supported in source 1.5, but I've already installed java 7 and change the variables accordingly. Help please? thanks

change the variables accordingly

What variables? Please post the Compiler plugin configuration in your pom.xml, without that my only guess is that you did something incorrectly.

Also, run "mvn -version" and see what version of Java it tells you about. If it is not 1.7, you need to change your JAVA_HOME.

Also, what OS?

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link:
