I am having issues with Maven in eclipse. When I try to run mvn install command it gives the following error

unable to locate javac compiler in C:\Program Files\ Java\Jre6\..\lib\tools.jar

I have tried toggling with the installed java for eclipse to jdk...

Please let me know if anyone has faced such issue with maven build in eclipse

Are you using the embedded Maven or do you have configured to use an external Maven ? Which Version of Eclipse and Maven are you using?

Have you set JAVA_HOME to JDK not JRE...?

Kind regards
