java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: org.sonar.batch.bootstrapper.EnvironmentInformation

Hi,

We’re using SonarQube Developer Edition 7.9, running in Docker.

On the scan side, we have one project being built & scan by Jenkins inside a Docker azul/zulu-openjdk:11.0.3 container.

The scan is run with Gradle 5.5.1, using

./gradlew test sonarqube -Dsonar.branch.name=feature/SFWK-271 -Dsonar.userHome=./.sonar --profile --info --stacktrace --console plain

We had to set the sonar.userHome property and to create the .sonar directory explicitly. If not, the scan was failing with Fail to create temp file in ?/.sonar/cache/_tmp.

However, now, our scan fails with:

I could not find any reference to this missing class anywhere.

Thanks for any help,

We fixed the issue by setting an absolute path for the sonar.userHome property:

-Dsonar.userHome=`pwd`/.sonar
