JabRef now fully uses Gradle, no ANT anymore. `./gradlew shadowJar` creates the jar in `build/libs`. In the current 3.5 branch, it is `JabRef-3.5dev-fat.jar`.

Latest development snapshots are availabe at http://builds.jabref.org/master/.

I would comment on https://aur.archlinux.org/jabref-git.git, but this link is 404.

The new JabRef URL is http://www.jabref.org/, no sourceforge anymore.

I get an error with this PKGBUILD:

[...]

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Total time: 1 mins 2.231 secs

This build could be faster, please consider using the Gradle Daemon: https://docs.gradle.org/2.12/userguide/gradle_daemon.html

It's fixed now, thanks for the report! :) JabRef devs are still in the process of porting from Ant to Gradle, so that PKGBUILD may break again in the future.

Confirmed.

For this update (jabref-git 2.11b3.251.g9b010a4-1) , and a fully up-to-date system that has been restarted, I get

I did try executing "gradle tasks" with the suggested options, but no error messages ensued.

Updated to use new git repo and gradle build system.

haawda commented on 2015-01-20 23:32

orphaned, new build system uses gradle, and I do not know how to package this.

the git repo is wrong

manolomartinez commented on 2013-04-21 01:18

Yes, and no :) Thanks , and sorry for the noise.

Did you switch from Oracle Jave to openjdk recently? Did you relogin after that switch? You may also rebuild jabref-git afterwards.
