I have imported repository from git and performed maven build. When I run my project with "clean install -U -Denvironment.type=dev -P autoInstallPackage -P analysis -P analysisCI" goals it throws following errors. Can some one please help me solving this.

This means that your Java installation files are probably corrupted with relation to the repositories files or the installation files being used by your installer.

Typical Solution

Attempt to reinstall the JRE on your computer. This is easiest by doing:

  1. Click the Start button.

  2. Select Control Panel.

  3. Click Programs | Uninstall a program.

  4. In the Search box on the top right corner, type “Java”

  5. Right click “Java Runtime Environment” from the Search Results, select Uninstall option.


This may be an error with the installation package associated with your installer which might mean you need to rebuild your installer, though I have only had to deal with this scenario once before with an installation package our company produced.
