Compiling Reference application 2.5

I am trying to compile reference application 2.5. I was encountered by the following error

Any idea what am I doing wrong?

Because it is based on platform 2.x, you need Java 1.8 to compile it.

Great Thyanks @dkayiwa Once more thing. I could not find messages.properties in the WAR anymore… Where is it moved to?

It moved to the api jar.

great @dkayiwa where is this located though :slight_smile:

Extract the war file and look in WEB-INF/lib for the openmrs api jar. You will need to unzip this jar to see the message properties files.

@dkayiwa amazing as always
