I am using javadoc doclets with gradle, so I need to use the package tools.jar, which is in the lib folder from the jdk (1.6.0_26 in my case).
The point is that gradle does not take it automatically, so I was adding that tools package to my libs folder, and then adding it to dependencies.gradle .
Now I want to take it directly from my JDK home into my dependencies.gradle. Is there a way to do that? I have tried the next in my dependencies.gradle:
But it does not find it while compiling.
Found it. System property ‘java.home’ is not JAVA_HOME environment variable. JAVA_HOME points to the JDK, while java.home points to the JRE. See that page for more info.
Soo… My problem was that my startpoint was the jre folder (C:jdk1.6.0_26jre) and not the jdk folder (C:jdk1.6.0_26) as I thought(tools.jar is on the C:jdk1.6.0_26lib folder ). The compile line in dependencies.gradle should be:
