How to use org.gradle.api.tasks.Copy task from within groovy class?


(dtserekhman) #1

Hi,

I’m trying to convert getFeaturesXml task I have defined in my build.gradle script below into a groovy class which extends from DefaultTask, so I can use it in my custom gradle plugin.

Here’s the task definition in build.gradle:

task getFeaturesXml << {
          copy {
            configurations.featuresXml.filter{it.toString().endsWith(".jar")}.each{
                from( zipTree(it) )
            }
            include 'features.xml'
            into workingDir
        }
}

Here’s how I’m trying to port it into a groovy class:

package com.iqnavigator.migration
  import org.gradle.api.DefaultTask
import org.gradle.api.tasks.Copy
import org.gradle.api.tasks.TaskAction
  class GetFeaturesXmlTask extends DefaultTask
{
    def featuresXmlConfiguration
      public def setFeaturesXmlConfiguration(def value)
    {
        featuresXmlConfiguration = value
    }
      @TaskAction
    void run()
    {
        copy {
            featuresXmlConfiguration.filter{it.toString().endsWith(".jar")}.each{
                from( project.zipTree(it) )
            }
            include 'features.xml'
            into workingDir
        }
    }
}

Obviously, “copy” is not recognized from within GetFeaturesXmlTask class. I tried to use new Copy(), but how do I specify this closure within it?

{
            featuresXmlConfiguration.filter{it.toString().endsWith(".jar")}.each{
                from( project.zipTree(it) )
 }

Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks! Dmitriy.

It’s ‘project.copy { … }’.
