How to specify tasks to be excluded from a GradleBuild task?

Hi folks, I am using the GradleBuild task to invoke a build in a different project. On GradleBuild we can specify tasks to be executed but not tasks to be excluded.

I thought I might be able to use the StartParameter like so, but it doesn’t have any effect.

task buildAppserver(type: GradleBuild) {
     dir = "../appserver"
     tasks = ["clean", "build"]

Is there any way to specify tasks to be excluded from the GradleBuild task?

Hey, your snippet looks correct to me. What is the output of the buildAppserver task? Can you share it?

cheers, René

My apologies, you’re right, its working.

I’m still thinking in a Maven way. Unlike Maven, It looks like Gradle still does all the test-related tasks such as compiling and jarring but not actually executing the tests.

I think you’re approach is better.

Sorry for wasting your time.

no problem
