Unable to locate the Javac Compiler in...Please ensure you are using JDK 1.4 or above and not a JRE

Solved 1 Answers 130 Views
I just imported a maven project from Git repository. I am getting below error while doing mvn clean install.

[ERROR] COMPILATION ERROR :
[INFO] -------------------------------------------------------------
[ERROR] Unable to locate the Javac Compiler in:
  C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_131\..\lib\tools.jar
Please ensure you are using JDK 1.4 or above and
not a JRE (the com.sun.tools.javac.Main class is required).
In most cases you can change the location of your Java
installation by setting the JAVA_HOME environment variable.

It looks like you have missed setting the JAVA_HOME environment variable.

Go to environment variable setting and add JAVA_HOME and point to the directory where your JDK is installed.

In my case, my JAVA_HOME is set to

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_131
