Please upgrade Gradle's Groovy to 2.4.8 (needed for Java9)

The currently used Groovy 2.4.7 has an issue with Java9 that breaks the Artifactory plugin.

Please consider upgrading to Groovy 2.8 in Gradle 3.5

Hi Dimitar,

could you add an issue to the gradle/gradle Github repository? Or could you even try contributing a pull request?



If I am to create a patch, how shall I do the integration testing? The build would need to run under supported JRE, but run that test build only under Java 8 and 9. Is there java 9 on the CI server?

The original problem is reproducible by the artifactory plugin, but I can imagine you don’t want the extra dependency. Or I can write a dummy plugin exposing the issue?
