How to build Elasticsearch plugin with graddle


(Dian Bakti) #1

Is there any good documentation or discussion thread with instructions on how to build Elasticsearch plugin with graddle?
graddle assemble from root directory seems to be only building Elasticsearch and excludes the plugin directories. I can't find any good documentation on how to develop (build in particular) plugins so far.
PS. Building with maven is also acceptable, as long as some decent documentation on how-to exists.

It's difficult to diagnose your issue without some more information. Could you please show which command line you are trying to run and what output you get?

I have a plugin that is built with graddle. Take a look.

@rjernst @sdauletau
I keep encountering:
Could not get unknown property 'classesDir' for test classes of type org.gradle.api.internal.tasks.DefaultSourceSetOutput.

I am using jdk-11, and trying to build for Elasticsearch 6.0
Should I use specific jdk or gradle version for this?

@sdauletau I get the same error when trying to build your plugin, thanks for sharing btw :slight_smile:

I have branches for 6.1.0, 6.2.0 and 6.5.4 in my repo. They all use gradle-4.5.

@sdauletau It's indeed caused by gradle version I think, I am using gradle 5.3.
Using gradle 4.5 works..
Thanks a lot!
