Symptom

When executing a process which manipulates files on Windows, or when performing an action which generates files (Build documentation for example), the following error occurs:

java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URI has an authority component

 

The files to be manipulated or created are located on a network location such as \\some-server\some-directory

Solution

This error is raised by Java when trying to work on an UNC location (\\server\directory).

The solution is to work on a local directory, and/or try to work on a network drive (G:, H:...).
