SDK Installation failure

See error message here >>> Click here

@brightoibe can you check SDK version you’re using

drop this at your terminal “mvn openmrs-sdk:help” to show version and mvn openmrs-sdk:run -X so we can see the full error log.

Can you also check your internet connection ,just to make sure maven pulls the dependencies using secure uninterrupted connection.

Hello @brightoibe please respond so that we may help you. Or have you succeeded in installing the SDK?

Thank you @irenyak1 @tendomart for the swift response. I appreciate.

We were able to solve the challenge. Apparently i installed maven version 3.0.5 on Ubuntu 14.04 via terminal and after running the SDK i discover that the build keeps failing. I later checked the Java version maven was pointing to and it was 'Java 6, then i installed Java 8.

Yet still it was throwing “BUILD FAILURE” i checked again and found out that it was still pointing to Java 6 after installing Java 8. Then i ran the below steps to set the default Java version to Java 8.

Firstly I opened Ubuntu Software center and searched for jdk removed the installer and default jdk 6 from there. Then I run the command :

sudo update-alternatives --config java

sudo update-alternatives --config javac

And selected the openjdk-8 from there. But when I run :

mvn --v

it said that JAVA_HOME is not set. Then did the following steps:

sudo gedit /etc/bash.bashrc

Added the following lines at the end of the file :

export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-oracle

export PATH=$PATH:$JAVA_HOME/bin

Then close the gedit. And run the command :

source /etc/bash.bashrc


Path was set. And now :

mvn -v
