You can however the embedded gradle jar is in a hashed directory under your username and isn't the same for everyone :

java -cp C:\Users\david\.gradle\caches\modules-2\files-2.1\com.h2database\h2\1.4.197\bb391050048ca8ae3e32451b5a3714ecd3596a46\h2-
1.4.197.jar org.h2.tools.Server

In my case.. it is alot easier to just use an embedded jar of the same version as you can see..
