I’m wondering whether there is an elegant way with
./gradlew taskA taskB taskC
to run all these top-level tasks sequentially, but their respective dependent tasks in parallel (if they allow it). That is, I’d like to get
taskA executed, and if it has dependencies on other tasks allow these tasks to run in parallel. Once
taskA has (successfully) finished, execute
taskB and its dependencies similarly, and finally do the same for
The current behavior (of Gradle 5.6.2) seems to be to run all tasks in parallel if possible. The potential downside of this is, if
taskA by itself is a very short running task, it might take much longer to execute if run in parallel with
taskB, which is unfavorable if you want to fail fast.
So my goal is to run quick check tasks first, and then more expensive ones, ideally in one command line call, and not like
./gradlew taskA && ./gradlew taskB && ./gradlew taskC. Is this currently possible somehow?
