Maven build failed: “Unable to locate the Javac Compiler in: jre or jdk issue”

You could try updating the JDK Eclipse is using, as follows:

Add and set the JRE in menu WindowPreferences…JavaInstalled JREs:

JRE type: Standard VM JRE
Name: jdk1.6.0_18
JRE home directory: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_18

If this is not the case, it’s possible that the brackets and spaces in the JAVA_HOME path are causing issues. Try copying your JDK to a different location and updating your JAVA_HOME.
