I’ve recently been working on a project using the vert.x web framework. I’m using the java and application plugins, and the ‘run’ task to well… run the application.
I’ve been hoping to use the continuous build feature of gradle as it will simplify development significantly, but it doesn’t seem to be working. The issue is that the ‘build’ never gets past “> Building 83% > :run”, so it doesn’t get to the point where it starts watching files.
My thought is that this could be something to do with what vert.x does under the hood vs. a more traditional program, but if anyone else has run into this issue and found a solution it would be greatly appreciated.
