Did you remember to?


1. Search using the upper-right search box, e.g. using the error message.
2. Try the latest version of tools.
3. Include tool and Java versions.
4. Tell us whether you are following GATK Best Practices.
5. Include relevant details, e.g. platform, DNA- or RNA-Seq, WES (+capture kit) or WGS (PCR-free or PCR+), paired- or single-end, read length, expected average coverage, somatic data, etc.
6. For tool errors, include the error stacktrace as well as the exact command.
7. For format issues, include the result of running ValidateSamFile for BAMs or ValidateVariants for VCFs.
8. For weird results, include an illustrative example, e.g. attach IGV screenshots according to Article#5484.
9. For a seeming variant that is uncalled, include results of following Article#1235.

Did we ask for a bug report?


Then follow instructions in Article#1894.

Formatting tip!


Surround blocks of code, error messages and BAM/VCF snippets--especially content with hashes (#)--with lines with three backticks ( ``` ) each to make a code block.

Compiler errors when building GATK core while gsea2-2.0.12.jar in CLASSPATH

Hi, this took me a while to debug, so I'm posting the solution here.
I started by downloading a clean copy of GATK core platform from GitHub. When I first tried building by running ant, I got the compiler errors below. The reason turned out to be that an unrelated jar (gsea2-2.0.12.jar) was on my CLASSPATH (this is from another Broad tool I've been using - Gene Set Enrichment Analysis). gsea2-2.0.12.jar apparently contains outdated versions of apache math and io packages which conflict with the GATK versions. Taking this jar off my CLASSPATH fixed the issue.

Ps. the compiler errors were:

    NP. Seems like this issue could occasionally repeat with different errors. Is there a reason GATK build.xml can't be changed from:

       <property name="build.sysclasspath" value="first" /> 

    to

      <property name="build.sysclasspath" value="last" />

    (this seems to fix the problem without having to remove GSEA from CLASSPATH) ?

    I'm not sure -- I'll fwd this to our build manager.

    FYI we are syncing up with the GSEA devs to avoid such collisions in future.
