I recently added some Unicode text for Russian and Hindi (Devanagari) to my Java application, Eclipse handles it fine, but Gradle crashes. On reading more, it seems that the problem is javac, so I guessed that using the Eclipse Compiler instead should work. I have been trying to get that working for days, and not making any progress! FWIW my version of Gradle is 2.14.1, and my version of Eclipse is Mars (4.5.0).
I know lots of people have put up ways of running ecj (is this right?) under Gradle, but every single one crashes in a different way! I suspect that some solutions are not complete build.gradle files, some refer to obsolete software, some assume other stuff is installed, so I am wondering if someone could post a complete, working, turn-key solution that will let me create and run a build.gradle file, just indicating which products have to have version numbers filled in, etc. This would fantastically helpful! TIA
By the way, my current javac-based build.gradle file works fine (if I cut out the Unicode), so the part I need is the part that specifies a different compiler. Thanks!
