Kotlin 1.5 and JaCoCo report exception

Kotlin 1.5 came out not so long ago and recently we decided to give it a go in our team. Upgrade mostly went smoothly, but our JaCoCo report task in Gradle started to throw an exception.

Surprisingly the task just failed without any output whatsoever.

Luckily, there is a way to make Gradle a bit more verbose. So, to troubleshoot the issue I ran it with --info and --stacktrace arguments like this:

./gradlew jacocoTestReport --info --stacktrace

The root cause in the stacktrace I got as the output was this:

Caused by: java.lang.IllegalStateException: Unexpected SMAP line: *S KotlinDebug

         … 161 more

I did a quick research and it turns out that by that time it was a known issue. And the solution to it is rather simple: just update your JaCoCo agent to version 0.8.7 or later.

Here’s how to do that with Gradle:

jacoco {
     toolVersion = "0.8.7"

And with Maven you just have to change the plugin version like this:


Luckily this was a rather easy change. Happy coding!
