Hi all. Been converting a project from maven to Gradle and ran into something that seems a little inconsistent but maybe I’m just doing something wrong.
I have the following snippet in a unit test:
final URL resDir = getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("."); final URL otherThing = getClass().getClassLoader().getResource("specific_file.json"); System.out.println("wow cool " + resDir); System.out.println("wow cool! " + otherThing);
Which ends up with the following output when running tests through gradle:
wow cool file:/mnt/dev/gauntlet_3/cat/build/classes/scala/test/ wow cool! file:/mnt/dev/gauntlet_3/cat/build/resources/test/specific_file.json
Where “cat” is the sub-project.
I have a few json files sitting at the top-level of src/test/resources, and I need to pass that directory to something I’m testing, because it’s expected to load json files based on names passed in later on.
Why does getting the directory go to classes, but getting a specific file goes to resources? I’ve tried “/” as well.
For now I’ve worked around it by getting the specific file and then using .getParentFile(), which is fine, but I’m wondering if there’s a better way to do this.
