I have been trying out Gradle 4.0 with Grails… one thing that has historically confused users is that when you do
gradle bootRun you get output like
85% EXECUTING. Even if the container is running. Gradle considers the build not complete until the
bootRun task terminates. We have lived with it up until now but it is worse with Gradle 4.0 because now you get the seconds counter which is distracting
I was wondering if there was a way to feedback to Gradle that the build is complete instead of having this
<===========--> 85% EXECUTING [21m 18s]``` An API could be provided that allowed a task to mark progress as complete. This would avoid confusion for users of frameworks like Spring Boot and Grails. Thoughts?
