The first time a user runs a project's
gradlew, it should be realized that it will do two key things:
If you're in an environment that requires all external traffic to go through a proxy, step two is going to fail (unless it's a transparent proxy environment). As a result, you need to ensure your have the JVM proxy parameters set.
For example, if you have a basic proxy setup with no authentication, simply set the environment variable
So a completed example on windows would be:
set JAVA_OPTS=-Dhttps.proxyPort=8080 -Dhttps.proxyHost=myproxy.mycompany.com
If however your environment also requires authentication, then you'll also want to review your other options at https://docs.oracle.com/javase/8/docs/api/java/net/doc-files/net-properties.html.
NOTE: This proxy configuration is in addition to any proxy configuration for your dependency repository access.
