Serverless Offline Error – sls offline start

Hi everyone,

I ran into the following error while trying to start serverless offline:

serverles events.js:160
throw er Unhandled ‘error’ event spawn java ENOENT at exports._errnoException (util.js:1020:11) at Process.ChildProcess._handle.onexit (internal/child_process.js:197:32) at onErrorNT (internal/child_process.js:376:16) at _combinedTickCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:80:11) at process._tickDomainCallback (internal/process/next_tick.js:128:9)

It turned out to be because I didn’t have the Java JDK installed.

I expect you’ll have the same problem if the command prompt doesn’t have access to the JAVA_HOME variable or if your JAVA_HOME path isn’t set correctly.
