How to debug gradle failure with "String index out of range: 0"


(David Richardson) #1

Hi,

I’ve run into a frustrating bug in the last few days. Everytime I run gradle, irrespective of which repo or task I use, I get an error - “String index out of range: 0”

I don’t know what version of gradle I was using when the problem occurred, but I’ve upgraded to 4.3.1 and still get the same error. The only changes I’m aware of making are upgrading macos to High Sierra, and the SSD file system being updated to APFS.

Colleagues have made the same change without any problems.

To rule out a problem with our projects, I’ve reproduced the problem with the gradle repo from github (output below). I’m not sure how to proceed here, any advice would be welcome.

Output of ./gradlew tasks --stacktrace

./gradlew tasks --stacktrace

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong:
    String index out of range: 0

  • Try:
    Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

  • Exception is:
    java.lang.StringIndexOutOfBoundsException: String index out of range: 0
