I am having difficulties passing JVM arguments in NetBeans to my Gradle project. My previous attempts got no success and maybe someone can help me.
Here is what I have tried so far: I am adding the JVM Argument via right click on project --> Properties --> Build In Tasks --> Run --> Putting the JVM Value in the designated field
When I run the project afterwards via right click and run it display:
Executing: gradle :run Arguments: [-PcmdLineArgs=, -c, D:\NetBeansProjects\app\settings.gradle] JVM Arguments: [-Dtest=mytestvalue] :compileJava UP-TO-DATE :processResources UP-TO-DATE :classes UP-TO-DATE :run 10:54:55.899 [main] System.getProperty('test') null
So the arguments are displayed in JVM Arguments:
[-Dtest=mytestvalue] but not transferred to the application it seems and
System.getProperty('test') results in
null. I also tried using custom tasks with the same effect.
If I create a jar file and pass the arguments everything works as expected:
λ java -Dtest=mytestvalue -jar app.jar System.getProperty('test') mytestvalue System.getProperty('test') results in mytestvalue.
My current workaround is to set the JVM arguments in the build.gradle file which works fine, but I want to get rid of writing the arguments directly into that file.
I am using Gradle 3.3 and NetBeans 8.2
