Buildship creates Eclipse Run Configuration



When I run any Gradle task from the Gradle Tasks panel, an Eclipse Run Configuration is created. Is there anyway to stop it from being created?

No, Buildship always creates run configurations for executing tasks. Can you please explain why would you want to disable this feature?


It duplicates the tasks (present now in the Gradle tasks view and the run configurations). If there are many other Run configurations, these have to be sorted through to locate the tasks I’d like in run configurations.
I’m not sure why they should be created, but if you feel it necessary, an option to not do that would be nice!

All right, I see. So if you want to have an option for this, I propose you create a ticket on the project’s issue tracker and explain the desired behavior. If more people agree with this and vote for the issue, we’ll prioritize it. Or, if you are interested you can submit a pull request with the implementation. We are happy to guide you through the process.


I have created an entry in the issue tracker. Where can we vote on the issue?
