[Commented] (MNG-6456) Log $JAVA_HOME when there is an issue with it

JIRA jira@apache.org

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6456?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16646351#comment-16646351 ]

Michael Osipov commented on MNG-6456:
-------------------------------------

The message is misleading...we don't necessarily require {{JAVA_HOME}} if the Java in {{PATH}} used is a JDK. Then this works. The message is misleading. It implies that we always require {{JAVA_HOME}}.

> I've just spend more time than was necessary on debugging a problem where Maven complained about a missing $JAVA_HOME, because there was no logging of which $JAVA_HOME was used.
> It would be really helpful to be able to see the $JAVA_HOME being used by Maven, in addition to the current logging:
>  
> {noformat}
> The JAVA_HOME environment variable is not defined correctly
> This environment variable is needed to run this program
> NB: JAVA_HOME should point to a JDK not a JRE{noformat}
