             Summary: CLONE - Unpack goal fails in java versions earlier than 7
                 Key: MDEP-598
             Project: Maven Dependency Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: unpack
    Affects Versions: 2.10
            Reporter: Sam Yi
            Assignee: Robert Scholte

When using the unpack goal with Java 1.5 or 1.6, the following error message 
will appear:

{{\[ERROR\] Failed to execute goal 
org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:2.10:unpack (unpack) on 
project ID-JRE_8.0: Execution unpack of goal 
org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-dependency-plugin:2.10:unpack failed: An API 
incompatibility was encountered while executing 

This is obviously calling a method introduced in Java 7. This contradicts the 
about page\[1\] that indicates that JDK 1.5 is the minimum required.

This bug does not appear until version 2.10. Version 2.9 works fine.
