Kafka 2.8.0 unit test falling , since gradle plugin site bintray.com is down

Hi all,
Need some assistance as unit test is falling for kafka 2.8.0 , below are detail. Appreciate any guidance ,

I have downloaded kafka 2.8.0 source code (from [Apache Kafka] ) and build binaries (following [GitHub - apache/kafka at 2.8]) . Although build is successful after changing gradle plugin url in gradle/buildscript.gradle but unit test is falling. I have attached unit test result.

My env details:

  • Gradle 6.8.3

  • java version “11.0.13” 2021-10-19 LTS

  • Java™ SE Runtime Environment 18.9 (build 11.0.13+10-LTS-370)

  • Java HotSpot™ 64-Bit Server VM 18.9 (build 11.0.13+10-LTS-370, mixed mode)

  • Scala code runner version 2.13.0

Few important points :

  1. Build and unit+integration test was working fine , around a month back.
  2. Since url ‘[https://dl.bintray.com/content/netflixoss/external-gradle-plugins/’ ] is down i have changed to url ‘[https://plugins.gradle.org/m2/]’ in gradle/buildscript.gradle file to make gradle command run.

Steps followed:

· gradle

· gradle jar

· gradle srcJar

· gradle aggregatedJavadoc

· gradle javadoc

· gradle javadocJar

· gradle scaladoc

· gradle scaladocJar

· gradle releaseTarGz

· gradle unitTest (Runs but few fails, attached report)

· gradle integrationTest ( throw error)

And what is your actual question?
All the bintray repositories were ended service, so they are not accessible anymore, including the one for netflixoss.
So it seems you have to tell Kafka developers about this problem in their tests.
