I’m a total newbie to Kotlin and Java: Sorry
I have to build a little program using a proprietary library. This library is a jar file.
I use IntelliJ and simply hit
Ctrl + R to run this program. This way I got a working program. Now I want to use this program as binary inside a docker / server / whatever. And I thought i want to build a JAR. My search revealed two solutions “Build Artifacts” und gradle.
With Build Artifcats I get a jar file, but this jar allways dies with errors.
Then I tried using gradle, starting a new project (Project Wizard, Gradle, Kotlin). Having everything in one kt source file it seemed to work.
gradle build created a distrubiton folder with a tar and a zip and binaries inside.
I seperated some functionality into a package. Again using
Ctrl + R, everything worked (with man adding the library-jar file at multiple places (Project Structure->Dependencies)
But my gradle build allways failes with:
Unresolved reference: originating in the package file, not the “main” file.
I really don’t understand the interaction of IntelliJ, Gradle, the build.gradle file and everything.
Is there any good basic tutorial covering my usecase?
Thanks a lot!
