According to this article, enabling the daemon in a CI environment (such as Jenkins, I presume) isn’t recommended. There is no explanation why, however, and I don’t seem to find any. I’m mostly curious why I shouldn’t use it all the time, especially now that it’s enabled by default in 3.0+.
On that behalf:
[…] Gradle will not emit the message if the CI environment variable is present.
I cannot seem to find any reference what variable that is and where/how to set it.
