org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • ... multiple external SVN Legacy SCM libs are loaded by the Jenkinsfile *and* the *Local module directory* indicates preservation/overriding of the parent directory. (Ie, when the dot default is not used and a working copy root directory for each lib is created under the {{@libs}} directory. Configuration of global and folder specific libraries as shown in the attachments. The Jenkinsfile script begins {quote}@Library('pipeline_global_helpers') _ @Library('pipeline_branch_build') import com.foo.bar.Application {quote} Running the pipeline makes it as far as checking out or updating the local working copies in the {{@libs/pipeline_global_helpers}} and {{@libs/pipeline_branch_build}} in the pipeline workspace on the master, but execution aborts thereafter with the stack trace {quote}ERROR: Library pipeline_branch_build expected to contain at least one of src or vars directories org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed: WorkflowScript: Loading libraries failed 1 error at org.codehaus.groovy.control.ErrorCollector.failIfErrors(ErrorCollector.java:310) at org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilationUnit.applyToPrimaryClassNodes(CompilationUnit.java:1073) at org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilationUnit.doPhaseOperation(CompilationUnit.java:591) at org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilationUnit.processPhaseOperations(CompilationUnit.java:569) at org.codehaus.groovy.control.CompilationUnit.compile(CompilationUnit.java:546) at groovy.lang.GroovyClassLoader.doParseClass(GroovyClassLoader.java:298) at groovy.lang.GroovyClassLoader.parseClass(GroovyClassLoader.java:268) at groovy.lang.GroovyShell.parseClass(GroovyShell.java:688) at groovy.lang.GroovyShell.parse(GroovyShell.java:700) at org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.cps.CpsGroovyShell.reparse(CpsGroovyShell.java:67) at org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.cps.CpsFlowExecution.parseScript(CpsFlowExecution.java:410) at org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.cps.CpsFlowExecution.start(CpsFlowExecution.java:373) at org.jenkinsci.plugins.workflow.job.WorkflowRun.run(WorkflowRun.java:213) at hudson.model.ResourceController.execute(ResourceController.java:98) at hudson.model.Executor.run(Executor.java:410) Finished: FAILURE{quote} The libraries both have {{src}} and {{vars}} subdirectories and cause no error if used individually if checked out with *Local module directory* set to the default dot (no working copy root directory). I have also avoided the error once or twice when overriding/preserving the working copy root directory when loading a single external library, but not reliably. Ultimately the above error recurs. Checking out straight into the {{@libs}} directory is good for the single-library use case but if I attempt to use multiple libraries, the first checkout's working copy is blown away by the second library's checkout. For now, my workaround is to use a single external library.
