[GRADLE-2682] Cross compilation of Groovy annotation on Java class does not work Created: 13/Feb/13  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 1.4
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Bug

Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0

Attachments: File annotation_test.tgz    


The project (Groovy 2.1.0, gradle 1.4) is attached to this issue.
This annotation:

@Target([ElementType.TYPE, ElementType.METHOD])
@interface Tx {

    String value() default 'def'

on this class:

public class PersonServiceJava {

results in the following build failure:

/home/rafal/Development/IdeaWorkspace/hibertest/src/main/groovy/test/PersonServiceJava.java:4: error: annotation Tx is missing value for the attribute value
1 error

My environment:

$ ./gradlew --version

Gradle 1.4

Gradle build time: Monday, January 28, 2013 3:42:46 AM UTC
Groovy: 1.8.6
Ant: Apache Ant(TM) version 1.8.4 compiled on May 22 2012

I am not sure if this is a Gradle issue, might be something in Groovy, but similar code works in groovyConsole (but the class is not a Java class)... Seems to be something in cross-compilation.

Looks like a Groovy stub generator bug. Here is the Java stub generated by the Groovy compiler (compileGroovy.groovyOptions.keepStubs = true):

import java.lang.annotation.*;
import java.lang.*;
import java.io.*;
import java.net.*;
import java.util.*;
import groovy.lang.*;
import groovy.util.*;

@java.lang.annotation.Retention(value=java.lang.annotation.RetentionPolicy.RUNTIME) @java.lang.annotation.Target(value={java.lang.annotation.ElementType.TYPE,java.lang.annotation.ElementType.METHOD}) public @interface Tx
 java.lang.String value();

As you can see, the default value is missing.

Yup, neither does it work on the command line when invoked with groovyc --jointCompilation. Have you issued it to groovy already? If not, I will do it. Thanks.

I haven't.
