      Description

      Shrinkwrap nio2-api fails to compile, resulting in the following error:

      [ERROR] Failure executing javac, but could not parse the error:
      The system cannot find the path specified.

      After some digging into this, it turned out this error was down to a missing environment variable JAVA7_HOME. This is not obvious from the error message.

      Currently in the shrinkwrap parent pom.xml there is a check for the JAVA5_HOME. Could an additional check be added at the same point for JAVA7_HOME?
