Maven build causes VerifyError with java 1.7

I got one simple class with test case for it and everything works fine in eclipse, but when I run maven build (with this goals : install cobertura:cobertura checkstyle:checkstyle-aggregate) I'm seeing a Verify error in surefire report.

Here is the exact error :

This is the class :

public class ClassUnderTest {
    public static boolean method(int a, int b) {
        if ( a == b) {
            System.out.println("");
            return true;
        } 
        return false;
    }
}

And the test :

public class ClassUnderTestTest {

    @Test
    public void testMethodReturnsTrue() {
        assertTrue(ClassUnderTest.method(1, 1));
    }

    @Test
    public void testMethodReturnFalse() throws Exception {
        assertFalse(ClassUnderTest.method(1, 2));
    }

}

And pom.xml :

<project xmlns="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance"
  xsi:schemaLocation="http://maven.apache.org/POM/4.0.0 http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd">

            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </pluginManagement>
  </build>
</project>

When setting the target to 1.5 this works but I need it to work with 1.7. More strange is that modifying the method to have only one return like this :

public class ClassUnderTest {
    public static boolean method(int a, int b) {
        if ( a == b) {
            System.out.println("");
        } 
        return false;
    }
}

also fixes the problem. I've tried setting the target and source version in properties block of pom, but the result was the same.

Is there a way to make this running on version 1.7?

EDIT : Also this problem appears only with goal cobertura:cobertura.

The problem seems to be in cobertura. Looks like it doesn't support java 1.7 very good. The fix was similar to the link that @Raghuram wrote for the eclipse. Modifying pom like this makes test works fine :

    <build>
        <plugins>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-surefire-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>2.12</version>
                <configuration>
                    <argLine>-XX:-UseSplitVerifier</argLine>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>
            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>2.4</version>
                <configuration>
                    <source>1.7</source>
                    <target>1.7</target>
                    <testSource>1.7</testSource>
                    <testTarget>1.7</testTarget>
                </configuration>
            </plugin>
        </plugins>
    </build>

Edit: mvn cobertura:cobertura does not work due to lack of support of cobertura for Java 7. This SO question discusses this. Looks like JaCoCo is the way to go.

mvn install works fine for me from command-line with maven-3.0.4 and java 1.7.0_04 on Windows 7. Possibly you are hitting this eclipse bug?

To add to @Pau' answer, <pluginManagement> is used in multi-module poms to declare <plugin> elements that can be inherited as required by children.

I get no errors with the pom in the question as well the following snippet:

<build>
    <plugins>
        <plugin>
            <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
            <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
            <version>2.4</version>
            <configuration>
                <source>1.7</source>
                <target>1.7</target>
                <testSource>1.7</testSource>
                <testTarget>1.7</testTarget>
            </configuration>
        </plugin>
    </plugins>
