Options for general JVM functionality.

Backend: pants.backend.experimental.java
Config section: [jvm]

Basic options

resolves

--jvm-resolves="{'key1': val1, 'key2': val2, ...}"
PANTS_JVM_RESOLVES
default:
{
  "jvm-default": "3rdparty/jvm/default.lock"
}

A dictionary mapping resolve names to the path of their lockfile.


default_resolve

--jvm-default-resolve=<str>
PANTS_JVM_DEFAULT_RESOLVE
default: jvm-default

The default value used for the resolve and compatible_resolves fields.

The name must be defined as a resolve in [jvm].resolves.


debug_args

--jvm-debug-args="['<str>', '<str>', ...]"
PANTS_JVM_DEBUG_ARGS
default: []

Extra JVM arguments to use when running tests in debug mode.

For example, if you want to attach a remote debugger, use something like ['-agentlib:jdwp=transport=dt_socket,server=y,suspend=y,address=5005']


Advanced options

jdk

--jvm-jdk=<str>
PANTS_JVM_JDK
default: adopt:1.11

The JDK to use.

This string will be passed directly to Coursier's --jvm parameter. Run cs java --available to see a list of available JVM versions on your platform.

If the string 'system' is passed, Coursier's --system-jvm option will be used instead, but note that this can lead to inconsistent behavior since the JVM version will be whatever happens to be found first on the system's PATH.


Deprecated options

None
