dependent on GRADLE-1365 Allow override of plugin convention p... Resolved



it would be great to be able to set the Jetty httpPort property via a system property and/or Gradle property. Right now you have to make a change to your Gradle build script (like adding a configuration task) to make this work. The plugin could predefine a property name (e.g. jettyHttpPort) that replaces the default port value.


  • System property: gradle jettyRun -DjettyHttpPort=9090
  • Gradle property (gradle.properties): jettyHttpPort=9090

I sent a pull request for this on GitHub.

I understand the need for this feature. But I wonder if instead of manually checking system properties, we could improve the way convention objects work so that "gradle jettyRun -PhttpPort=7070" works out of the box.

I would be OK with enriching convention objects also. Actually, that's better. Do you want me to open another ticket for that?

Someone already created GRADLE-1365.

Great, thanks. If you want you can mark this ticket as a duplicate.

Comment by Peter Niederwieser [ 04/Feb/11 ]

I've already marked it as dependent.

The Jetty plugin has been deprecated and is scheduled to be removed with Gradle 4.0. We are not going to work on this issue anymore.
