We noticed:  JAVA_HOME should be pointed to JDK and not to JRE; Java home: /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle/jre?

That's a great point, however, I am not finding any specific documentation for where that should point to.

which javac returns

which cannot be set as $JAVA_HOME

Most ppl point to the installed JAVA JDK - my JAVA_HOME --

C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.8.0_111

It says: "There is another default Java installation called the JDK (Java Development Kit). The JDK is usually only needed if you are going to compile Java programs or if the software that will use Java specifically requires it."

Set your Java HOME to Java JDK - make sure you install version 8 from Java download page.

I went to the Oracle site, downloaded java 8 and installed it. My new Maven Output

$mvn -version

I deleted my .M2 folder and tried again to build the package

Unfortunatly I get the same error
