Build status Gradle plugin


Build Info is Artifactory's open integration layer for the CI servers and build tools. The build information is sent to Artifactory in json format.

Building and testing the sources

  • The code is built using Gradle and includes integration tests.
  • It must run using JDK 8 and Gradle 5.6.2. If you are using different gradle version you can use the provided gradle wrapper.
  • In order to run tests the following environment variables must be set:
export BITESTS_PLATFORM_URL='http://localhost:8081'
export BITESTS_PLATFORM_ADMIN_TOKEN=admin-access-token
export BITESTS_ARTIFACTORY_PIP_ENV=/Users/user/venv-test/bin

See here how to generate an admin token for the above environment variable.

Before running the tests:

  1. Create a generic repository named tests in Artifactory.
  2. Create a project with btests as its key in Artifactory.


When running the following commands to build the code, the entire testing suite is also executed. See the Testing section for configuration instructions prior to running the tests.

To build the code using the gradle wrapper in Unix run:

./gradlew clean build

To build the code using the gradle wrapper in Windows run:

gradlew clean build

To build the code using the environment gradle run:

gradle clean build

To build the code without running the tests, add to the "clean build" command the "-x test" option, for example:

./gradlew clean build -x test


To run all tests:

./gradlew clean test

Extractor tests

./gradlew clean build-info-api:test build-info-client:test build-info-extractor:test build-info-vcs:test

Maven tests

./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-maven3:test

Gradle tests

./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-gradle:test

npm tests

  • Add npm executable to the system search path (PATH environment variable).
  • npm 7.7 or above is required.
./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-npm:test

Go tests

  • Add Go executable to the system search path (PATH environment variable).
  • Go v1.14 or above is required.
./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-go:test

Pip tests

  • Add Python and pip executables to the system search path (PATH environment variable).
  • Pip tests must run inside a clean pip-environment. Create a virtual environment and provide its path using the 'BITESTS_ARTIFACTORY_PIP_ENV' variable. When running on a Windows machine, provide the path to the 'Scripts' directory. When running on a unix machine, provide the path to the 'bin' directory.
python -m venv buildinfo-tests-env
export BITESTS_ARTIFACTORY_PIP_ENV=/Users/user/buildinfo-tests-env/bin
./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-pip:test

NuGet tests

  • Add Nuget & Dotnet executable to the system search path (PATH environment variable).
./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-nuget:test

Docker tests

  • Docker tests run only on Linux/mac.
  • Create the following docker repositories in Artifactory:
    • docker-local
    • docker-remote
    • docker-virtual (contains both docker-local & docker-remote repositories)
  • In addition to the general environment variables required for running the tests, you must set the following environment variables, required for the docker tests:
    • Replace localhost:8081 prefix with your docker registry domain if needed.
 export BITESTS_ARTIFACTORY_DOCKER_LOCAL_DOMAIN=localhost:8081/docker-local
 export BITESTS_ARTIFACTORY_DOCKER_REMOTE_DOMAIN=localhost:8081/docker-remote
 export BITESTS_ARTIFACTORY_DOCKER_VIRTUAL_DOMAIN=localhost:8081/docker-virtual
  • For OSX agents, run a Socat container:
docker run -d -v /var/run/docker.sock:/var/run/docker.sock -p bobrik/socat TCP-LISTEN:1234,fork UNIX-CONNECT:/var/run/docker.sock
  • Run tests:
./gradlew clean build-info-extractor-docker:test

Testing on Artifactory OSS

When testing with an instance of Artifactory OSS, only supported tests are for the build-info-gradle-extractor.

On Artifactory pro, the tests infrastructure will create the test repositories by REST API. To run the tests on Artifactory OSS, you should create the Gradle repositories by yourself. To run Gradle tests on Artifactory OSS:

  • Start Artifactory on docker container:
docker run --name artifactory -d -p 8081:8081 -p 8082:8082
  • With your web browser, go to Artifactory UI:
  • Create 3 Gradle repositories:
    • Local repository: build-info-tests-gradle-local
    • Remote repository to jcenter: build-info-tests-gradle-remote
    • Virtual repository containing both the remote and local: build-info-tests-gradle-virtual
  • Run tests ./gradlew build-info-extractor-gradle:test
