I have general question how do I find the api for task or plugins ?

I had old build.gradle that fails with latest gradle version.

  • What went wrong: A problem occurred evaluating root project ‘jio-services-gradle’. > Failed to apply plugin [id ‘android-reporting’]

A problem occurred configuring project ‘:JioMdkInternalInterface’.

Could not find property ‘packageLibrary’ on

gradle -v

If I new how to just load some class in groovysh then I could have found the attributes/properties/method of a task/class. Please share this process of how can one easily understand details about Task or any artifact used in gradle scripts.

You can find the Android Gradle Plug-in help here:

Note that it may be easier to find Android-specific help on Stackoverflow.

Does not quite answer my question. I have difficult time trying to figure out the api/javadoc of tasks and plugins so that I can quickly do necessary changes.

Also to inspect the object like if we do in debugger I do not quite understand easy way like a debug shell like for java jdb etc. and setting break points.
