Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-7634) create should not fail when JAVA_HOME is not set
Date Thu, 02 Oct 2014 11:25:33 GMT


Asier Iturralde Sarasola commented on CB-7634:

I have just updated from Cordova 3.5.1 to 3.6.3 using "sudo npm update -g cordova" in Linux
Mint 17 (like Ubuntu 14.04) and now I get this error when I try to run "cordova platform update

I added this line to my bashrc file and now it works:
export JAVA_HOME=/usr/lib/jvm/java-7-openjdk-amd64

Is it correct that way? Is there a better way?

> the android create script errors out if JAVA_HOME is not set, and the script cannot derive
it. But if the javac binary is resolvable (i.e. in the users PATH), then setting JAVA_HOME
is unnecessary. Don't force users to set it.
> Error message:
> Could not find JAVA_HOME. Try setting the environment variable manually
