Gradle - Block


block in Gradle.

A block is found in a script and is a method call which takes a closure as a parameter. The closure is treated as a configuration closure which configures some delegate object as it executes.


The code is code sensitive. The type should be set with the value Copy with an uppercase C.

Example with the Copy block that shows two statements

task copy(type: Copy, group: "Custom", description: "Copies sources to the dest directory") { // Begin Block
    from "src" // statement 1
    into "dest" // statement 2
} // End block
