The kwgradlew command creates a Java build specification based on the information in your Gradle wrapper.

You can also create a build specification using your Gradle build file. For more information, see Kwgradle.


Before you can create a build specification, you need to
  • install the Server package. See Installing Klocwork.
  • ensure that the Gradle task is configured to use a supported version of Gradle. See Supported Java build tools to see what versions are supported.
  • have the path to the JVM executables set in the PATH environment variable:
    • Unix:
    • Windows:

For more information, see Creating a Java build specification.
