JAVA_HOME set to /usr/lib/jvm/default-java

Edited

I've just spun up bamboo on an Ubuntu VM & I'm taking my first steps with the product.

I'm trying to run a simple script which prints groovy --version and / or echo $JAVA_HOME

The echo statement is empty and groovy --version results in:

groovy: JAVA_HOME is not defined correctly, can not execute: /usr/lib/jvm/default-java/bin/java

When I  run ${bamboo_capability_system_jdk_JDK}/java -version it works.

When I run echo $JAVA_HOME on an SSH connection, I get /usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/`. java --version also works in a terminal.

My /etc/environment file looks like this.

PATH="/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/usr/local/games:/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/"
JAVA_HOME="/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/"

I also have a global JDK set and can see that in the plan execution log:

bamboo_capability_system_jdk_JDK=/usr/lib/jvm/java-8-openjdk-amd64/

Why is Bamboo unable to see the JAVA_HOME setting?

Hi,

I assume you are using the script task in Bamboo for your script: Bamboo Script task

It is possible to add environment variables in this script task but I do recommend that you use Bamboo capabilities and executables and Bamboo variables when you are defining your tasks. I will make sense to you very quickly. It is very flexible and dynamic.

Hope this will help you get further.

Regards

Lasse Langhorn
