Play! 1.2 build with Bamboo

I'm trying to setup bamboo to work with a Play web application but it is not working. I'm using the script task to run the play script and it is complaining that it can't find a main class. However, if I open a shell and run play from the same directory it works fine. There is something about the environment which bamboo is running the script than the environment which the shell is using. Does anyone have any experience with Play 1.2 projects and Bamboo? (I'm not finding much help online).

You can reproduce by:

(note: I'm using Ubuntu 13 and OpenJDK 1.7)

1. Download the play 1.2 framework - I'm using http://downloads.typesafe.com/play/1.2.5.3/play-1.2.5.3.zip

2. unzip it and add the directory to your path (so that the 'play' command is on the path).

3. install bamboo with the express install and create a new project/plan.

4. create a play app in a source repo. For example, see https://jhatfield@bitbucket.org/jhatfield/bambootest.git

5. create a bamboo task to build and run the tests for the app. Use the script task and enter:

play auto-test

6. When I run the build it outputs:

Are you running it from the command line on the bamboo server as the bamboo user? You might look at the environment variables as well. It could be that the bamboo user doesn't have access to the same environment variables as "you" do (are yours user variables not system variables?). You may have to add something to the env variables field in the bamboo task. I'm not familiar with Play but it doesn't look like a problem with your build any way if it will run from the command line. Make sure you've got your exe's location correct. I don't know how you're running this but scripts behave differently than commands so if this is scripted it may not be finding an executable but not be reporting it.

Also if you ran it in the bamboo workspace from the command line first it may have mucked up the filesystem permissions so that when bamboo goes to execute it doesn't have the correct permissions on something.

looks like it fails on this:

CompilerOracle: exclude jregex/Pretokenizer.next (present in your output from cmd line but not bamboo).

Could it be that you don't have oracle_home or something like that configured properly for bamboo or that bamboo doesn't have access to start oracle?

Just some suggestions.

How did you solve the issue?

put:

unset JAVA_OPTS

before your 'play' line

This widget could not be displayed.

Setenv.sh can put trailing spaces JAVA_OPTS, and Play chokes on that.
The workaround is to call "unset JAVA_OPTS" just before you call "play".
Bamboo 5.6.2 will fix this (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-14966)
