I installed maven and I am able to execute maven -v. In the command prompt, i cd to the directory and run maven site. The build fail error is 'Invocation of method 'getText' in class org.apache.velocity.anakia.Escape threw exception class java.lang.NullPointerException : null
I am new to maven and do not know how to remedy this

thanks for the help in advance
