Ant Zipfileset to gradle conversion. Stuck



Ant Script

 <war destfile="${dist.dir}/${warname}.war" update="true" >
 <attribute name="Compiled-By" value="${}" />
 <attribute name="Compiled-On" value="${TODAY}" />

 <zipfileset dir="src/com/place/microscope" prefix="WEB-INF/classes/com/place/microscope">
 <include name="*.xml" />

So basically I have to go to src/com/place/microscope and grab the .xml files and place it into ${warname}.war directory and (into the WEB-INF/classes/com/place/microscope)

What I did

war {
manifest {
    'Compiled-By': '',
    'Compiled-On': 'TODAY',
archiveName 'MANIFEST.MF'

include '*.xml'
into 'WEB-INF/classes/com/place/microscope'

manifest gets written to file but the files did not get transfer/copy over.
