build fails on Ensemble8 when following instructions

Create issue
Issue #63 new
Travis Wellman created an issue

The "test drive" instructions in are pretty simple.

gradle install

and then

cd samples/Ensemble8
gradle assemble

And the build fails.

But wait, there's a gradle wrapper.

cd ../..
./gradlew install
cd samples/Ensemble8
./gradlew assemble

Oops no wrapper in the sample... funny. This crosses major versions. Above gradle wrapper is 1.12, but recent gradle is 2.14. Could this have something to do with the issue? Anyway, try using the 1.12 wrapper.

cp -rv ../../{gradlew,.gradle,gradle} ./
./gradlew assemble

Still the build fails.
