Eclipse Error: Failed to load the JNI shared library … \jre\bin\client\jvm.dll

Check if you use a 64bit JDK to start the 64bit Eclipse. The 64bit JDK should be in “C:\Program Files\Java\..”

You can specify a specific JVM in the eclipse.ini file with the -vm argument:
C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_21\bin\javaw.exe

The -vm option must occur before the -vmargs option, since everything after -vmargs is passed directly to the JVM.

Maven Eclipse Compiler Error “No compiler is provided in this environment. …”

I got the following compilation error while running the Maven install command from Eclipse:

“No compiler is provided in this environment. Perhaps you are running on a JRE rather than a JDK?”

Go into Window > Preferences > Java > Installed JREs > and check your installed JREs. You should have an entry with a JDK there.

Go into Window > Preferences > Java > Installed JREs > Execution Environments

Select JavaSE-1.6, click the jdk checkbox on the right. Then use “update project configuration” from the maven menu.

Eclipse Error: “Enabling Maven Dependency Management” has encountered a problem

February 17, 2013 7 comments

The following error apears if one imports a project which was created with Maven (mvn eclipse:eclipse) and tries the “Configure” -> “Convert to Maven Project” function:
An internal error occurred during: “Enabling Maven Dependency Management”. Unsupported IClasspathEntry kind=4

To fix this error open the project with Eclipse, run the “mvn eclipse:clean” command and try the “Configure” -> “Convert to Maven Project” function again.
