Groovy Grails Tool Suite won't stop building Gradle Grails project


(Stephen Edgecombe) #1

I’m new to GGTS, Grails and Gradle but experienced with Eclipse and Maven.

So I know I’ve stuffed something up. This question is about how to get out of it.

I started building a Grails project and then enabled it for Gradle, probably too hasty.

Now, every time I start GGTS a Gradle build of the project starts and never gets beyond 52%. Canceling doesn’t work.

The only way to stop it is to Close GGTS, then kill the prgress window in WIndows Task Manager.

Next time I start GGTS, there goes the build again.

Project -> Build Automatically is turned off.

Even tried

  • deleting the project folder,

  • opening GGTS, delete the project,

  • then checking out from my Git server again.

= There goes the build again.

So: 1) How do I stop the project from building? 2) Any suggestions why Gradle isn’t completing or failing the build of the Grails project? 3) How do I prevent it in the future?

And: If anyone has some “Getting Started with Gradle in Grails (2.3) projects” I’d be mighty appreciative.

Thanks Steve
