Eclipse Maven project: Unable to locate the Javac Compiler
Joined: Jul 02, 2008
I'm using Eclipse Indigo on Win XP, Maven 3.0.3 and I have just built a Maven-GWT project using GWT 2.4 and the gwt-maven-plugin. Despite the fact that I have pointed my Eclipse JDK to what I have installed -- http://screencast.com/t/7TYkFh8rcObL, I'm still getting this error when I right click on my project and select the "Maven Install" option ...
I verified through the Windows start menu -> Run, "cmd" window that %JAVA_HOME% is set properly. What other settings do I need to adjust to eliminate the above error?
You can see it here -- http://screencast.com/t/ON65FsgGp . I verified this path exists by going to the Start Menu, selecting "Run", entering "cmd" and then doing "cd %JAVA_HOME%" at the command prompt, which successfully changes the current working directory.
I tried switching to the JRE you recommended. Also, my compiler is set to 1.6 (http://screencast.com/t/kKGB6b8IEkPW), but I got the same result as before, right-clicking on my project, seleting Run As -> Maven Install. But why would I move away from a Java installation that had javac? The error is complaining about not being able to find javac, so how do I tell the Maven-Eclipse plugin where to find it?
If you looked at the screen shot I sent, the thing I cut and pasted was actually my JAVA_HOME. I mistyped "path" in the previous post. My environment variables %PATH% is set to
What is the relationship between the %PATH% and %JAVA_HOME% env.vars and what the Maven Eclipse plugin uses to execute Maven commands? - Dave
