[GRADLE-1318] Some files added to classpath of war task end up in libs rather than classes Created: 18/Jan/11  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

The following war task causes all *.txt files to end up in the lib directory, rather than the classes directory.

war {
classpath fileTree(dir: 'special', include: '*.txt').files

The war DSL doc states "Any JAR or ZIP files in this classpath are included in the WEB-INF/lib directory. Any directories in this classpath are included in the WEB-INF/classes directory."

While the above does not specify where files other than jar/zip will go, it seems logical to place them in classes so they are accessible via java class loaders at runtime.
