Buildship not reading property in ~/.gradle/gradle.properties

buildship

(Thad Humphries) #1

All is fine when I build my project from the command line. However, when I add a dependency, and select Eclipse Gradle -> Refresh Gradle Project, the refresh fails when a property declared in ~/.gradle/gradle.properties is said to be undefined. The error line in the partial stacktrace below is for

def bootClasspathStr = java8runtime+"/jre/lib/rt.jar"

java8runtime is defined (the script works from the command line). In Eclipse I must use the full path.

I am using Neon.2 Release (4.6.2) and Buildship 1.0.21v20161010-1604. The did not exists a few weeks ago. The only new plugin I spy in the interim is the EGit plugin for Eclipse, 4.6.0.201612231935-r.

Partial stacktrace:

Hi Thad,

the only explanation I have at the moment is that you might have changed the Gradle User Home in the workspace preferences.

Cheers,
Stefan

Yes, that’s it. I had wrongly set Gradle User Home to $GRADLE_HOME. When I cleared the value–so it now used the default ~/.gradle–it works fine. Thank you.
