[GRADLE-1319] Accessing properties of subprojects does not work Created: 18/Jan/11  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 0.9.1
Fix Version/s: None

Type: Bug
Reporter: Lars Heuer Assignee: Unassigned
Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 0


I have a multiproject build.gradle as follows:

configure(javaProjects()) {

apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'maven'

group = 'my.group'

vendorName = 'ACME'

uploadArchives {
repositories.mavenDeployer {
repository(url: 'http://repository.url.here')


{ name projectName description projectDescription [...] }


But that does not work since I get:

Cause: No such property: projectName for class: org.gradle.api.internal.artifacts.publish.maven.pombuilder.CustomModelBuilder

All subprojects have a "projectName" property. How can I get access to

I tried something like the following:

afterEvaluate { Project project ->
project.task('uploadArchives') <<

{ [...] }


But then I get the error, that the subproject has already a
'uploadArchives' task. I think, it's the one, which was added by the
Maven plugin automatically.
