I’m using kotlin script to provide test data for my tests. The problem is the first compilation, when kotlin compiler needs to load all it’s stuff, which may take up to 7 secs on my weak laptop. It doesn’t really matter on CI, but running tests locally is pain.
So I want to use kotlin compiler daemon, to save time on first test launch.
I managed to get kotlin compiler daemon up and running, and kotlin compiler client to use that daemon for compilations.
The problem I facing is
java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Cannot find metadata for script error, when trying to invoke script’s compiled class
main method. See example. I also noted, that Hello world part of my script is executed, at the constructor call.
How may I resolve this?
What’s in metadata?
Can kotlin compiler be used in that way, or I was just lucky
