I am trying to build on an arm 64 bit platform.
Following these instructions .

I have successfully built grpc-java
but only by adding skipCodegen=true to

I have succesfully build protobuf on the platform as well
by following the instructions on the same page.

however, after building protobuf, when I go back I try to build grpc-java without the gradle properties file, I get this error ...

ubuntu@tegra-ubuntu:~/grpc-java3/grpc-java$ ./gradlew build
*** Building codegen requires Protobuf version 3.0.0
*** Please refer to

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred configuring project ':grpc-compiler'.
> Exception thrown while executing model rule: NativeComponentModelPlugin.Rules#createBinaries(TargetedNativeComponentInternal, PlatformResolvers, BuildTypeContainer, FlavorContainer, ServiceRegistry)
   > Invalid NativePlatform: linux_aarch64

It appears that this code generation plugin is a necessary component to tensorflow.
I need to get tensorflow installed on this machine [nvidia jetson tk1], so I need to find a way to build this plugin.
Any suggestions?

Take a look at this thread on grpc-io mailing list (which references another thread).

It's not at all clear from that thread what to add to the config. As far as I can tell, gradle currently doesn't support e.g. arm-v7. Given that Bazel is now available, and it can (in earlier versions, pre 0.3.x) be bootstrapped on arm-v7 fairly easily, why not use Bazel to build grpc as well? Because of this issue it is currently not possible to build Bazel 0.3.x -- it wants GRPC Java, and GRPC Java can't be built on arm-v7. Checkmate.

I got this working on my odroid-c2 (aarch64):

I also stumbled upon @alexryan's gradle thread that also has a solution. I'd like to tweak my solution slightly so that it is obvious the arch variable was ignored before sending out a PR.

Also note: ./gradlew build is a bit more annoying now-a-days for arm because it can't locate protoc-gen-javalite. You can do ./gradlew assemble to avoid the tests and that dependency. Otherwise you'd need to build the javalite protobuf branch. I did do that when I was testing, so I know it works, but it adds yet another step.

@alexryan, where is the grpc-java.v0.15.0.patch referenced in that guide?

osdetector.os occur the error, should i build osdetector-java-plugin? could you give me any ideas?

I have solved my build error. Build os-maven-plugin for mips64 arch support, then osdetector.os and can be recognized. Building os-maven-plugin for mips64 infers os-maven-plugin-mips64.patch

Bazel build support was just added in #2975. I'd be interested if that makes life easier here. Yes, we still don't have official binaries for ARM, but Bazel users might not care any more.
