Subject Problem with JAVA_HOME relative path
Date Mon, 01 Feb 2010 01:00:41 GMT
Hi All,

I get the following error and I'm pretty sure that the problem is hidden
somewhere. Things of interest are in *bold* below

[INFO] Compiling 16 source files to
D:\Workspace\gwt1.6-maven2-starter-app-1.0\server\target\classes

Unable to locate the Javac Compiler in:

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.

D:\Workspace\gwt1.6-maven2-starter-app-1.0\parent>*echo %JAVA_HOME%*
*C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.6.0_14*

My JAVA_HOME appears to be set correctly, pointing to jdk1.6.0_14. However,
the compiler plugin is looking for ..\lib\tools.jar. Which does not exist,
because the ".." (up one directory) path is actually pointing to 'C:\Program
Files\Java\lib\tools.jar' which is obviously wrong.

Any idea's where the relative path could be getting trashed?

Cheers :)

p.s. to get the source for the code I am trying to build:
svn checkout *http*://gwt-maven2-starter-app.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/gwt-maven2-starter-app-read-only
