Trying to execute gradle on SpongeForge repo fails

I’m trying to set up everything to work with SpongeForge.

I’m working on a Windows 10 machine and try to setup everything in eclipse mars.
When I try to import SpongeForge as a Gradle project it fails with the following error. (I reproduced it with the cmd and --stacktrace)

    \SpongeForge>gradle --stacktrace

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* Where:
Build file 'D:\Programming\git\SpongeForge\SpongeCommon\build.gradle' line: 31

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating project ':SpongeCommon'.
> MCP_INJECT

* Try:
Run with --info or --debug option to get more log output.

* Exception is:
org.gradle.api.GradleScriptException: A problem occurred evaluating project ':SpongeCommon'.

Hopefully you have some advice how to fix this.
Kind Regards Randalf

What gradle version are you using?

Try with the wrapper, gradlew.bat instead

gradle -version

Shows that gradle version is 2.14.1.
gradlew.bat fails as well.

Make sure your submodules are up-to-date using git submodule update --init --recursive. If that doesn’t help you could also try refreshing the dependencies, maybe something is outdated:

gradle --refresh-dependencies

@Minecrell submodule are up to date and with gradle --refresh-dependencies I get the following error.

did you run gradle setupDecompWorkspace?

The issue you mentioned happens if you don’t use the Gradle wrapper.

@simon816 gradle setupDecompWorkspace failed, but how @Minecrell metioned with gradlew.bat setupDecompWorkspace it worked. Thanks to you a lot for taking the time to answer. I have a last request. I’m very new to gradle so could you why it needs a specific wrapper instead of the normal gradle command?
Kind Regards
Randalf

The Gradle wrapper is identical to a local Gradle installation, except it uses a fixed per-project version of Gradle. Probably an incomparibility between whichever version of Gradle you have installed and the version Sponge is using.

The master branch of the Sponge implementations is currently incompatible with newer Gradle versions, that was already fixed in bleeding. I just need to backport the fix from the other branch.

It doesn’t have high priority though because you can (and should!) always use the Gradle wrapper because the version used by the wrapper is the primary version we test with. The wrapper has the advantage that you are always up-to-date with the Gradle version currently used by Sponge.
