Configuring SONAR with Maven on Mac


October 24, 2013

I had this issue a few times:

Can not execute SonarQube analysis: Unable to execute Sonar: Fail to download [http://localhost:9000/api/server].

Turns out for some reason this is a problem with the default Ruby install on OSX. The workaround is to use JRuby instead of Ruby, best done with RVM, e.g. rvm use jruby. Someone mentioned this online, and I cannot find the post now, but thanks.

I use Sonar with Homebrew, by the way, which has its log files at /usr/local/Cellar/sonar/<version>/libexec/log/sonar.log.
