Status: Resolved

Type: Bug
Reporter: Russel Winder Assignee: Unassigned
Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0


If I use gradlew (0.9-20100121145940+1100) then I get a reasonable error message on an incorrect task:

|> gradlew testInteg

FAILURE: Could not determine which tasks to execute.

* What went wrong:
Task 'testInteg' not found in root project 'gradle'.

* Try:
Run with -t to get a list of available tasks.


Total time: 8.386 secs

However using Trunk as at 2010-02-19 12:00+00:00, I get the rather less useful:

|> gradle testInteg

FAILURE: Build aborted because of an internal error.

* What went wrong:
Build aborted because of an unexpected internal error. Please file an issue at: www.gradle.org.

* Try:
Run with -d option to get additional debug info.

* Exception is:
java.lang.NullPointerException: null

Hi Russel,

do you still get this behavior?

I can't reproduce it.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!
