General docs on ComponentSpecs, Binaries, Platform, Toolchain etc


I was looking at the new rule based model configuration and looked at the code of the play framework plugin. There is a lot of stuff going on with defining Specs and BinarySpecs and BinaryTask, Platforms and Toolchains.

With the docs of the play and native plugin I kind of get a vague picture what does what but I was wondering if there is a more general description on how these elements work together.

Thanks in advance

Hi Max. We’re working on improving the docs for this.

Check out these chapters in the user guide:

These will be further improved for Gradle 2.7-rc-1, which is scheduled for next week.

Cool, thank you very much, looking forward to the rc then!
