invalid flag: –release -> [Help 1]

I need to build a project with jdk 8. When I run Maven, Build failed with the below given error.

invalid flag: –release -> [Help 1]

After removing the below version specification in pom.xml, everything went as expected.

    <configuration>
        <source>1.8</source>
        <target>1.8</target>
    </configuration>
