The 'major.minor version 52.0' error is possibly because the jar was compiled in JDK 1.8, but you are trying to run it using a JDK 1.7 environment. The reported number is the required number, not the number you are using. To solve this, it's always better to have the JDK and JRE pointed to the same version.
