java.lang.UnsupportedClassVersionError

javax/servlet/ServletContext : Unsupported major.minor version 51.0

Samebug tips4

Update "latest" to Java 8 on DockerHub.

This might be caused by and outdated version of Java, SonarQube now uses Java 8 as default. You might upgrade java or use an older version of SonarQube.
