Building a project with Gradle

If your project uses the Gradle build system, cd into the directory containing the build.gradle file for the module you wish to build.

For a single-module project, this is typically located at the root of your repository. For a multi-module project, this may be within a sub-directory.

To compile the project, if a gradlew (or gradlew.bat on Windows) file is present, run the ./gradlew build command, otherwise run gradle build.

It is generally preferable to execute Gradle commands using ./gradlew (or gradlew.bat on Windows) rather than gradle if these Gradle Wrapper scripts are present in your project.

In either case, if successful, you should see a BUILD SUCCESSFUL message towards the end of the output from Gradle:

7 actionable tasks: 2 executed, 5 up-to-date

In order to run Diffblue Cover CLI it is essential that your Gradle project builds successfully. If it finds a Gradle project, Cover CLI will call Gradle to determine your project settings. If your Gradle project fails then Cover CLI will exit with an error message (and reason):

ERROR An error was encountered while building the Gradle project at ...

If there is a Gradle wrapper for your project (gradlew, gradlew.bat), Cover CLI will use the wrapper's declared version in preference to your system's installed Gradle version.
