I've been trying to make my spike of Embedded AS work on WinDoze this morning and I ran into a small snag. Here's my setup:
The configuration for the compiler plugin seemed to not work when running Maven from IDEA. This prevented me from runing 'install' on 'JBoss Embedded AS aggregator' because it kept saying 'javac is not a command'. I fixed that by commenting out all the configuration for the maven-compiler-plugin, just leaving "<soruce>1.6</source><target>1.6</target>".
Seems to be compiling now.
I believe the build requires JAVA_HOME set to find javac.
if that helps you..
