Unable to customize facet 'jst.java' to 1.6

Using Gradle 1.11 & JDk1.7, We are unable to customize ‘java’ facet for web project.

I am trying to customize facet, how ever, I end up getting two records.

eclipse {
    wtp {
  facet {
   facet name: 'java', version: '1.6', type: org.gradle.plugins.ide.eclipse.model.Facet.FacetType.fixed

Below facet xml is what I am getting:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
 <installed facet="jst.web" version="2.5"/>
 <installed facet="wst.jsdt.web" version="1.0"/>
 <installed facet="jst.java" version="1.6"/>
 <installed facet="jst.java" version="1.7"/>
 <fixed facet="java"/>

Any suggestion how to use jst.java = 1.6 using JDK1.7 ??


I have/had the same issue in projects with ‘java’ plugin (in projects with ‘war’/‘ear’ plugin it works).

As far as I see, this should be fixed with 2.3: https://issues.gradle.org/browse/GRADLE-2221 https://issues.gradle.org/browse/GRADLE-2186

In the meantime I use a “ugly” workaround (i.e. change the file manually):

eclipseWtp << {
                          File facetXmlFile = new File(project.projectDir.path + '/.settings/org.eclipse.wst.common.project.facet.core.xml')
  def xmlRootNode = new XmlSlurper().parse(facetXmlFile)
  def changed = false
      xmlRootNode.children().findAll{ childNode ->
   childNode.name() == 'installed' && childNode['@facet'] == 'jst.java'
  }.each{ installedNodeForJava ->
   installedNodeForJava['@version'] = javaVersionCompatibility
   changed = true
    if( changed ){
   def writer = new FileWriter(facetXmlFile)
   XmlUtil.serialize(xmlRootNode, writer)

I’m not the groovy expert so maybe there is a nicer/easier solution for that.

Please try again with Gradle-2.3-rc-1 (http://gradle.org/release-candidate). There have been many improvements to the ‘eclipse-wtp’ plugin in this release.
