[GRADLE-1593] Tooling API should provide a way to create tasks and execute them Created: 06/Jun/11 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Perhaps it is easiest to explain what I'm after with a simple use case.
Let's say that we'd like the IDE to provide a menu command to generate the gradle wrapper for a project.
We already have API to execute tasks defined by the user in their build script, but we don't have any way for the IDE to create its own tasks and execute them.

I think it might be better to expose a way for Eclipse to manage the version of Gradle to use for a project, rather than a way to create tasks. For example:
This way, we can change how this works behind the tooling API. For example, the wrapper is baked into the tooling API implementation, and so it could just generate the wrapper files without executing Gradle or any tasks.

Kris mentioned in the email that he no longer needs that feature that much.
