How to exclude checkstyle task from build task?

I want to know how to change build task? I have checkstyle task and i want that to be get exclude from build task. As because of that my whole build is getting failed.

gradle build -x checkstyleMain

okay this is one way, How should i mention in build gradle file for skipping checkstyle task.

There are a few ways - take a look at this chapter in the user guide:

checkstyle {
    sourceSets = []

Now Checkstyle tasks will only run when called explicitly from the command line or depended upon explicitly in the build script.

it worked…thank you so much (y)
