Local javac Path Issues on Older OpenShift WildFly8.2 Based Project

Discover how AppDynamics steps in to upgrade your performance game and prevent your enterprise from these top 10 Java performance problems, brought to you in partnership with AppDynamics.

I have an app that I created a few months back on OpenShift based on the WildFly 8.2 cartridge. Locally in Eclipse the project builds and compiles fine, but executing mvn directly or in Netbeans (which also builds using your mvn pom.xml), it fails with an error regarding a path to javac:

Failure executing javac, but could not parse the error:
/bin/sh: ${env.OPENSHIFT_WILDFLY_DIR}usr/lib/jvm/jdk1.8.0_05/bin/javac: bad substitution
1 error

This is obviously setup for building specifically in the OpenShift environment with this property defining the path to javac:


There’s a few posts and discussions about this (e.g. here and I suspect this is related), but I’m guessing the version of the pom.xml I have is older and been changed recently. I created a new OpenShift WildFly based project to compare the created pom.xml, and these two properties are no longer in the pom.xml file:


Removing them fixes my local builds, and pushing the code to OpenShift still seems to build ok too.
