Bamboo compilation fails due to unmapple character set encoding UTF-8

We have configured a maven java project which creates a WAR on Bamboo.

When I generate WAR from Windows, it create WAR without any issues and build is successful.

On Linux, however, it fails compilation with an error message:

unmappable character for encoding UTF8

What is missing for linux to support UTF-8 character set?

Also, in my pom I have included


Can someone help? Should we include any command for maven while running on Bamboo?

Use <encoding> tag for maven-compiler-plugin and it will compile the special characters.

If you wish to set UTF-8 encoding in your Maven build you need to set the encoding to UTF-8 not ISO-8859-1 (Which is the "Latin 1" encoding).

For example:



I used ISO-8859-1 for maven-compiler-plugin in the <encoding> tag and it worked fine. Thanks.
