example gradle task, trying to disable task optimization checking. The build runs from jenkins in a fresh dir each time. I want to run my task all the time,I dont want it to spend time (5-10min) generating fileHashes.bin so it can determine that yes, all the files are new.
task grailsWar(type:Exec, dependsOn: [ initProject] ) {
description = "launch the war process, work is done by grails"
logger.debug "Task[$name]: configuration closure"
outputs.upToDateWhen { false }
ignoreExitValue false
executable project.ext.grailsExe
args "-Dgrails.env=${project.ext.buildEnv} war --non-interactive --plain-output --verbose --refresh-dependencies"
// Define a Task and pass it a configuration closure. Evaluated during configuration Phase
task productionWar(type:Copy, dependsOn: [ initProject, grailsWar ] ) {
description = "take the contents of the build/ directory and produce a single archive/distribution file"
logger.debug "Task[$name]: configuration closure"
outputs.upToDateWhen { false }
from('target') {
include '**/*.war'
rename 'output-(.*).war', project.ext.warName
destinationDir file(project.ext.artifactDir)
// Push actions onto the task's doList
productionWar << {
logger.debug "Task:[$name] - execution closure"
