Occasional :compileJava task failures due to compiler crash


#1

I am getting some javac crashes occasionally and am wondering if this could have anything to do with Gradle or if anyone else has experienced this. At first I thought it was due to this compiler bug (http://bugs.sun.com/bugdatabase/view_bug.do?bug_id=7073508) but the error is different from that. Based on the following stack trace segment maybe the classpath is getting messed up somehow? Thanks for any input on this issue.

Also, I forgot to mention – whenever this error occurs, I can simply rerun the build and it will succeed. Then maybe it will be several more days until it happens again. Very strange.

Caused by: java.lang.NullPointerException

 at com.sun.tools.javac.file.ZipFileIndexArchive$ZipFileIndexFileObject.inferBinaryName(ZipFileIndexArchive.java:224)
 at com.sun.tools.javac.file.JavacFileManager.inferBinaryName(JavacFileManager.java:670)
 at com.sun.tools.javac.jvm.ClassReader.fillIn(ClassReader.java:2536)

And here is my Gradle information:

------------------------------------------------------------
Gradle 1.3
------------------------------------------------------------
  Gradle build time: Tuesday, November 20, 2012 11:37:38 AM UTC
Groovy: 1.8.6

Ivy: 2.2.0
JVM: 1.7.0 (IBM Corporation 2.6)
OS: Linux 2.6.32-279.19.1.el6.x86_64 amd64

Here is the full stacktrace:

You are using an IBM JDK, so you might have to hunt for IBM JDK bugs.
