Our android app is being build using Gradle. I'm currently evaluating Bamboo for this project. Jenkins does have plugin to run Gradle build. However, I'm not sure if Bamboo run Gradle build. One of the question on Atlassian answers that it is available but it is on demand.
What is the status of this support ? Is it still on demand ? Does this on demand plugin support all Gradle to the fullest ?
Quick Setup Guide
Use this script (e.g. for Gradle 2.5):
mkdir -p ~/mnt/bamboo-ebs/gradle && cd $_ wget https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.5-bin.zip unzip gradle-2.5-bin.zip
Then take a new snapshot from the EBS volume and use this in your elastic agent.
Afterwards add "Executable Capability" to your image configuration with this as path:
Now you can use Gradle as Command in Build plans and add the task name as argument - e.g. "build".
Oliver, not sure how your solution work, can you please describe with reference of following issue.
I install an trial version of Bamboo and setup rest of work include path of Git-Repo and all. Now issue is my Android Project used Gradle as build system but there is no direct support in Bamboo for this. Then what I need to add in "Script configuration" to make it happened.
Any suggestion here !
You can use the gradle wrapper (./gradlew) to execute gradle. I'm doing the same thing :)
Be aware that the documentation is catastrophically wrong with Bamboo >= 5.0. There are all kinds of bugs and missing features that I'm sorting out. One of them is that the Bash property export doesn't function at all.
For what it's worth...we build with gradle daily for one of our projects (one of the larger projects we have) but use a script to execute the build. We have a gradleprojectbuild.cmd script which we call from bamboo. We weren't able to get the plugin to work with this project (but then this project may not be typical so don't blame the plugin). We are using the download version of bamboo, but the build script is hosted in our repository and accessible with the rest of the source within the plan build workspace.
If you can build it from the command line you can likely build it with bamboo.
@GretchenRunning gradle with command script is interesting to me. I like your comment that "if you can build it from the command line you can likely build it with bamboo". I want to run just plain-vanilla gradle tasks without a plugin. I script is fine. Can you share the basic script?
One way to use gradle in bamboo - use the gradlew wrapper. (as Dustin Barnes mentions above)
Use a script plugin - The script (after checking out source code) might be "./gradlew clean build" (or gradlew.bat)
One tricky thing is to make sure the "gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.jar" file is forced to be checked in
(e.g., "git add -f gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.jar") and checkin ".gradle/*" v2.13 perhaps
Also - I checked that the build worked on a laptop first - whatever your environment is ...
I'm using the Artifactory for Bamboo Plugin for running Gradle Tasks in my Bamboo Jobs and I've not had any problems with it. It's got a simple checkbox for the Bamboo Jobs to use the Gradle Wrapper bundled into the project rather than the Gradle version installed on the build machine.
There's also the Groovy Tasks for Bamboo Plugin but I've not used that one.
