Project build error:
'dependencyManagement.dependencies.dependency.systemPath' for
jdk.tools:jdk.tools:jar must specify an absolute path but is

I am kind of new to maven, any help will be appreciated.

You've specified a dependency on jdk.tools:jdk.tools:jar with a <systemPath> of ${JAVA_HOME}/lib/tools.jar. ${JAVA_HOME} isn't a valid Maven property. The syntax to read the environment variable JAVA_HOME is ${env.JAVA_HOME}. However, the same information is exposed as a system property named java.home, so ${java.home} is the best solution.
