I used to have tonnes of issues building OpenHAB on windows and even ended up creating a dedicated Linux build virtual machine for it. Then I stopped using spaces in any of paths in Windows and the issues went away.
Thanks for the advice, but I use the path D:\Development\repos\openHAB
without spaces, because I already experienced these Maven issues under
Windows. So that’s not the cause in this case, unfortunately.
I have a similar issue with my setup on OS X 10.10
trying to work with openHAB 2 Alpha2
