Most likely, you are using Java 11+ with a version of OpenMRS prior to 2.5.0. Most likely your issue will go away if you build it with Java 8.
Thanks, Ian you were correct about not being on java8. I made the adjustment but unfortunately, that did not resolve the issue. The build still fails with the error message java:[17,27] package java.rmi.activation does not exist
I’m 85% sure this is the proper link…
What’s the output of this command mvn -v?
@gsa13 sorry brother. kindly go to your command line and run mvn -v to see the maven version installed on your computer or otherwise read through .https://wiki.openmrs.org/display/docs/Step+by+Step+Installation+for+Developers 4
Thank you for the link to read. The results running mvn -v
Apache Maven 3.8.6 (84538c9988a25aec085021c365c560670ad80f63) Maven home: /opt/homebrew/Cellar/maven/3.8.6/libexec Java version: 1.8.0_333, vendor: Oracle Corporation, runtime: /Library/Internet Plug-Ins/JavaAppletPlugin.plugin/Contents/Home Default locale: en_US, platform encoding: UTF-8 OS name: “mac os x”, version: “12.5.1”, arch: “x86_64”, family: “mac”
Hi Mumbere, I appreciate the link as it also included step-by-step directions on installing OpenMRS for Mac OS. I have tried all I can think of to get past the build fail including starting from scratch and installing from the terminal without using eclipse. Do you know of any other resources I can lean on for help?
Sorry about that persisting challenge brother. let @jwnasambu help us. thank you
Try running these commands:
git reset --hard and
git clean -df then compile again
I appreciate it but I’m still getting the same error.
Share the output of the commands
java version “1.8.0_333”
Try to run
git pull --rebase upstream master and compile again
So I’ve finally made it to the OpenMRS Core 2.6.0-0 Installation Wizard using docker and immediately ran into an issue with my Mysql password required for login. I reset the root Mysql password (though I knew what it was) and reset everything and I continued getting the error:"Unable to create the database. The password might be incorrect or the database is not started."
I’m running mysql Ver 8.0.30
I’ve seen in other threads stating the Solution is to select advanced settings and you will have the option to change the default password. This did NOT work for me.
Thanks in advance for any insight.
