Method in build.gradle not available in imported scripts

(Thierry Guérin) #1

Guess I came too late to the 1.12-rc2 party (12 minutes before the 1.12 announcement). Just in case my message in the 1.12-rc2 announcement went unnoticed, I stumbled upon a regression:

when a method is defined in build.gradle, it’s no longer available to the scripts that build.gradle includes.
void echo(String string) {
logger.quiet string
apply from: file(‘include.gradle’)

task myTask {
echo(‘this used to work’)

This used to work with version 1.11 (and since at least 1.1, which is the oldest Gradle version that I still had handy).

Hope this helps (should I open a bug report?),

Hello Thierry, sorry for the late reply. I can reproduce this issue with gradle 1.12 and its indeed working with 1.11. Indeed it came a bit to late for us to be noticed before releasing 1.12. So there is indeed a regression.

I’ve created a bug in our issue tracker at

cheers, René

Ok, thanks.

Do you think that this can potentially change the plans (1.12 is the last release before 2.0) and open the possibility of a fix in a 1.13? Just curious, I do not need the features introduced in 1.12 and can wait until the 2.0 release for a fix.

for me this is a very crucial isssue, because I have to (re)write the generated Eclipse “.classpath” files of all subprojects in a manner that they apply to what Eclipse PDE wants to have (“Plugin-dependencies”).

Execution failed for task ':de.uvdms.root:eclipseClasspath'.

It will be fixed in 2.0, which is expected to hit the streets in about 6 weeks.
