How to change output directory of generated querydsl sources in Eclipse?

Using querydsl-apt dependency along with jpa classifier I’m able to generate needed code (.java files) under “build/classes/main” directory, where it sits along with compiled code (.class files). I would like to change directory of generated code to something like “src/generated/java” and then add that location to the Java source directory, so that it includes both locations: “src/main/java” and “src/generated/java”. I guess the latter I can achieve with following:

sourceSets {
    main {
        java {
            srcDirs 'src/main/java'
            srcDirs 'src/generated/java'

but I don’t know how to change the output location first.

Here’s my build script:

 buildscript {
    repositories {
    dependencies {

// Apply the java plugin to add support for Java
apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'eclipse'
apply plugin: 'spring-boot'

jar {
    baseName = 'gs-serving-web-content'
    version =  '0.1.0'

// In this section you declare where to find the dependencies of your project
repositories {
    // Use 'jcenter' for resolving your dependencies.
    // You can declare any Maven/Ivy/file repository here.

// In this section you declare the dependencies for your production and test code
dependencies {
    // The production code uses the SLF4J logging API at compile time
    compile 'org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.7.21'
    compile 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web:1.3.6.RELEASE'
    compile 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-thymeleaf:1.3.6.RELEASE'
    compile 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-data-jpa:1.3.6.RELEASE'
    compile 'mysql:mysql-connector-java:6.0.3'
    compile 'com.querydsl:querydsl-jpa:4.1.3'
    compile 'com.querydsl:querydsl-apt:4.1.3:jpa'

    // Declare the dependency for your favourite test framework you want to use in your tests.
    // TestNG is also supported by the Gradle Test task. Just change the
    // testCompile dependency to testCompile 'org.testng:testng:6.8.1' and add
    // 'test.useTestNG()' to your build script.
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.12'

task wrapper(type: Wrapper) {
    gradleVersion = '2.3'

I also faced the same issue. The solution is here

Seems javac has a -s option for annotation processors B-)
