Gradle - Build composite





Include the specified build in the composite.

gradle --include-build           


The directory buildSrc is treated as an included build.

The special buildSrc project is built before the main build runs.

Upon discovery of the directory, Gradle automatically compiles and tests this code and puts it in the classpath of your build script.

For multi-project builds there can be only one buildSrc directory, which has to sit in the root project directory.

buildSrc should be preferred over script plugins as it is easier to maintain, refactor and test the code.
