[GRADLE-1247] If a build is run after an update in the build.gradle script, we get the following error message: (java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Build file '[...]/build.gradle' should not contain a package statement) Created: 07/Dec/10  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 0.9-rc-3
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Bug
Reporter: Narcisa Pantilimon Assignee: Unassigned
Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0

Attachments: Zip Archive gradle bug.zip     Text File stack trace.txt    


It appears that this problem is caused by the usage of the fully qualified name of a custom plugin in 'apply plugin' statement or by importing a class.

If Gradle finds the source code for the classes imported or applied as plugins in build.gradle script, it will generate the AST tree for those classes and will complain about the existence of the 'package' statement:
java.lang.UnsupportedOperationException: Build file '[...]/build.gradle' should not contain a package statement
(see the full stack trace log file attached to this bug)

In order to reproduce this bug, follow these steps:

  • unpack the 'gradle bug.zip';
  • set the 'uploadArchivesRepositoryURL' to a valid URL;
  • run the script from MyUtils folder (it will upload an artifact with the attached sources);
  • run the script from MyClient

The bug reproduces only when the script from MyClient is modified and after that, executed. If you run the script again, without any change, it will successfully execute.
