Gradle project build fails: Could not create an instance of type org.gradle.invocation.DefaultGradle_Decorated


(Retewe Ayoo) #1

Hello. I am trying to make a Gradle project run on Java 9.0.4 (it built well with Java 8) and get the following error:
~/projectfolder$ ./gradlew shadowJar
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Could not create an instance of type org.gradle.invocation.DefaultGradle_Decorated.
> Could not configure services using GradleScopeCompileServices.configure().

The same operation with --stacktrace key makes this output:

Full output
FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
Could not create an instance of type org.gradle.invocation.DefaultGradle_Decorated.
> Could not configure services using GradleScopeCompileServices.configure().

* Try:
Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output. Run with --scan to get full insights.

* Exception is:
org.gradle.api.reflect.ObjectInstantiationException: Could not create an instance of type org.gradle.invocation.DefaultGradle_Decorated.

BUILD FAILED in 1s

JAVA_HOME variable and org.gradle.java.home in gradle.properties file are both set to jdk-9.0.4 folder path. My Gradle version is 4.7.

Just now I tested standalone Gradle version 4.7 and got the same error.

What should I do to fix this problem?

Hi, maybe it’s too late. I had same problem after upgrading to JDK 10. Uninstall gradle, delete manually .gradle folder and reinstall gradle again. This worked for me.
