I'm trying to make a native image of a clojure application of mine that's a very simple command-line wrapper around kibit, To compile this I run:

clojure -A:depstar:$@ dist/kibit-runner-standalone.jar -C -m kibit-runner.cmdline
	native-image                                                            \
	  -jar dist/kibit-runner-standalone.jar                                 \
	  dist/kibit-runner                                                     \
	  --initialize-at-build-time=clojure                                    \
	  --report-unsupported-elements-at-runtime                              \
And when I run this I get:
[root@f092da83da6c kibit-runner]# ./dist/kibit-runner
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.ExceptionInInitializerError

This seems to say that the application is trying to start a socket repl of some sort but why? Anyone have any clue what's going on?

The stacktrace occurs at runtime, not compile time

I get the same issue if I use initialize-at-build-time=clojure. If I just use initialize-at-build-time then things appear fine but that causes other issues.

tvaughan 2020-08-24T13:50:57.016700Z

I tried numerous different combinations myself, each with different errors

phronmophobic 2020-08-20T01:46:40.000100Z

are you aot compiling everything?

tvaughan 2020-08-20T01:48:03.000300Z

I think so. I'm using the -C option in depstar to compile the uberjar,

phronmophobic 2020-08-20T02:00:12.000700Z

require allows you to specify you can load it verbosely:

phronmophobic 2020-08-20T02:00:52.000900Z

I would try requiring verbosely and seeing if that helps track down what might be using clojure.server

phronmophobic 2020-08-20T02:04:03.001100Z

nothing jumps out as a problem with your usage. I might try starting with a simple -main that just prints something and progressively add the dependencies and functionality to try to narrow down what might be the issue. it's a little tricky though since native-image does a pretty good job of only trying to only include necessary dependenciies

tvaughan 2020-08-20T02:19:30.001300Z

What should I look for in this output? I don't see any namespace being loaded that contains the string server

tvaughan 2020-08-20T02:19:47.001500Z

I appreciate the help. Thanks

phronmophobic 2020-08-20T03:07:21.003100Z

it should be printing out the order in which namespaces are loaded. i was hoping the last print before the stack trace would identify the culprit
