[GRADLE-1086] logging currently disabled for testing custom tasks executed on projects instanced from ProjectBuilder Created: 02/Aug/10  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 0.9

The gist of the problem is that there isn't an easy/documented way to enable test logging when using ProjectBuilder. Tasks that are subsequently executed on dummy projects are assigned NOPLogger which eliminates useful logging. Thus, the developer is blind as to the results of legit logging statements (as granted by inheritance) during tests.

Per Adam's response I have a hackish workaround in place by adding the following to build.gradle:

  testRuntime 'ch.qos.logback:logback-classic:0.9.24@jar'
  testRuntime 'ch.qos.logback:logback-core:0.9.24@jar'
  testRuntime "org.slf4j:slf4j-api:1.6.1@jar"

and Misha's code from http://gradle.1045684.n5.nabble.com/Feature-request-standard-output-and-error-logging-with-TestNG-td1432775.html#a1432775

Has to be a better way, no?
