In the GUG, section 55.4, “Initialization”, there is the following about multi-project builds:
“If you execute Gradle from within a project that has no settings.gradle file, Gradle does the following: It searches for a settings.gradle in a directory called master which has the same nesting level as the current dir. If no settings.gradle is found, it searches the parent directories for the existence of a settings.gradle file.”
This seems to be saying that anytime I execute Gradle in a directory that does not have a “settings.gradle” file, Gradle will search up the entire file tree looking for a “settings.gradle” file. Is this really what it does?
