Attempting to build the gradle project fails

I am attempting to build an unmodified version of the gradle source using the gradlew wrapper in the project and the build is failing with the following error.

./gradlew build

I would like to work on contributing some improvements, but I need to be able to build the project first.

It happens from time to time, due to a bad commit or unstable test. You can watch the official build status at (see ‘Gradle - Master - Commit Builds’). You can continue the build despite a test failure with ‘–continue’.

Hi Adam, Please could you supply a bit more information: Number of cores. Amount of RAM.

dual core 4 gigs of memory

I double checked, for the changeset I am on the CI build is green on the official build (changeset id: 83db5ce227b2568894ccf49e1eb3bdb4c039da34)

Hi Adam,

The error output should give you the location of the HTML test report. We’d need to see that before we could diagnose any further.

I don’t see any way to attach the file, so I just copied the visible text into a Gist

it is trivial to solve, the uses only 2 executor threads by default, and the cyclic barrier pattern of ParallelProjectExecutionIntegrationTest.groovy requires 3 concurrent threads in one of its tests, adding


to the ‘setup’ method is sufficient to fix it, I made a gist with the patch/diff in

I’ve fixed this. Thanks for the detective work and patch.
