Reason of OS=Windows and the assembly descriptor contains

This error (OS=Windows and the assembly descriptor contains) may occur during Maven build. The reason is simple and this is due wrong path in <outputDirectory> section in assembly config XML file.

Basically this error occurs when you are trying to build project that is compatible with Linux on Windows 🙂

Solution

Change path in <outputDirectory> to correct value. Please find the example below. In most cases the “./” (dot and slash) before path will resolve problem.

<fileSets>
        <fileSet>
            <directory>${project.basedir}</directory>
            <outputDirectory>./</outputDirectory>
            <includes>
                <include>*/include>
            </includes>
        </fileSet>
</fileSets>
