I’m using gradle (via the gradle wrapper) for a medium-sized project. My standard time for a build from scratch is about 7 minutes, including downloading gradle, downloading all maven dependencies and building my project.
Yesterday, after reading about your 1.0 release, I tried upgrading the build from 1.0M5 to 1.0 final.
A first run told me about the change from ‘‘properties’’ to ‘‘ext.properties’’, so I made the change and started a full build. Surprised when 10 minutes later, the tasks still were not done, I went away and let gradle work. Two hours later, it was still resolving and downloading some dependencies. I imagined that maybe there was some hickup with the files I already had, and deleted the gradle folder from my home directory, restarted - to no avail. Gradle ran for an entire day (>8 hours), and still wasn’t finished resolving/downloading all dependencies.
Just to make sure, I reverted to Gradle 1.0M5, removed the cache from my user home once again, and had a build within 6.5 minutes.
I’ve looked through the migration guides, but didn’t notice anything that points to this problem. All issues regarding resolution speed (starting with M6) appear to be resolved. I’m feeling stupid, because after the long run-up, the issue certainly is on my side, yet it is not obvious to me.
Can you help me out?
