When I try to build rosjava, I am running into this very strange error:


FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

  • What went wrong: Could not copy MANIFEST.MF to '/Users/Yeison/ros_java/rosjava_core/rosjava_messages/build/tmp/jar/MANIFEST.MF'.

When I listed the file, it shows the proper permissions. The file is owned by me. However, it contains 0 Bytes. I even tried deleting the file and rerunning the gradle install. The same problem persisted.

Is something creating the file prematurely? I'll take a look to see if I can find that.

This problem can be resolved by making sure that the setup.bash file is sourced. I accidentally opened a new terminal and forgot to re-source.
