Gradle 1.0-milestone-7 hangs when copying files

I’m using Gradle to create a ZIP file and then copy that and a WAR file to our network drive for a downstream build job. Gradle always hangs when copying the files.

The Gradle script:

apply from: "${hsmtBuildDir}/hsserv-repos.gradle"
apply from: "${hsmtBuildDir}/third-party-repos.gradle"
apply from: "${hsmtBuildDir}/version.gradle"
  project.version = globalVersion
  configurations {
    publish
    publishWar
    all*.exclude group: 'net.sourceforge.jtds', module: 'jtds'
    all*.exclude group: 'log4j', module: 'log4j'
    all*.exclude group: 'bcel', module: 'bcel'
    all*.exclude group: 'com.thoughtworks.qdox', module: 'qdox'
    all*.exclude group: 'xpp3', module: 'xpp3'
    all*.exclude group: 'org.springframework', module: 'spring-test'
    all*.exclude group: 'junit', module: 'junit'
    all*.exclude group: 'ch.hedgesphere', module: 'HSMtTestCore'
    all*.exclude group: 'org.jibx', module: 'jibx-extras'
    all*.exclude group: 'org.jibx', module: 'jibx-schema'
    all*.exclude group: 'org.jibx', module: 'jibx-tools'
    all*.exclude group: 'javax.mail', module: 'mail'
}
  configurations.all {
    resolutionStrategy.cacheDynamicVersionsFor 1, 'minutes'
}
  dependencies {
    publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtDealingTermModule', version: hsmtVersion
     publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtDealingTermTransactionCore', version: hsmtVersion
     publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtFundPortfolioModule', version: hsmtVersion
    publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtFrontEndIntegrationModule', version: hsmtVersion
    publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtLiquidityModule', version: hsmtVersion
     publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtTradeTermModule', version: hsmtVersion
     publish group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtMasterDataHSMOModule', version: hsmtVersion
       publishWar group: 'ch.hedgesphere', name: 'HSMtWebServer', version: hsmtVersion, ext: 'war', transitive: false
}
  task zipHsLibs(type: Zip) {
    archiveName = "${buildDir.name}/hs-middletier-${project.version}.zip"
        from(configurations.publish) {
            include '*.jar'
        }
}
  task deploy(type: Copy, dependsOn: zipHsLibs) {
    into '//infonicnas/hsdeploy/hslibs/'
    from zipHsLibs
    from configurations.publishWar
}
  task clean(type: Delete) {
    delete 'build'
}
  task wrapper(type: Wrapper) {
    gradleVersion = '1.0-milestone-7'
}

Looking at it with VisualVM, it appears to get stuck on:

org.gradle.util.HashUtil.createHash() |–java.io.FileInputStream.read()

I left it running for 15 minutes and it eventually finished! Looks like it is very slow at creating a hash of the WAR file (around 35MB in size). Any ideas on what’s going wrong here?

How long does it take you to manually copy the war file from the network share to your local machine?

< 10 seconds.

It’s worth noting I was testing on my workstation with an SSD to arrive at the 15 mins. On our Jenkins server it takes a whopping 40 mins to execute (running Windows 7 64-bit).
