    How about providing some more information? What exactly are you doing? A copy-pasted stack trace is always more useful than "i got the error like". You could let us know what platform you're using too (OS / JVM version / Servlet container etc). What is "doing mvn installation"? If that's a command line, copy-paste it. If it's an IDE feature, tell us what IDE you're using and describe the GUI actions needed to invoke the feature.
