Clean bin folder


I am newbie in Gradle. The project contains bin folder with .class files. Is there any task to delete all these files? I supposed clean task should do that. But it just deletes “build” directory.

The ‘bin’ folder is typically created by Eclipse, not by Gradle. You could make the ‘clean’ task delete it, but it wouldn’t make much sense.

Thank you, Peter.

In Maven maven clean command deletes everything except source code so I expected the same behavior with Gradle.

The Maven ‘clean’ command won’t delete the ‘bin’ directory either. As I said, it’s easy to configure the Gradle ‘clean’ task to delete the ‘bin’ directory (see ‘Delete’ in the Gradle Build Language Reference). However, I don’t see much value in doing so, and it may lead to problems with Eclipse.
