[GRADLE-1628] Clean task doesn't delete classes directory if classesDir was set Created: 21/Jun/11 Updated: 25/Jan/17 Resolved: 25/Jan/17
This problem was discussed on the mailing list. In case you change the default classes directory the clean task doesn't delete the directory. Apparently, it only works on build/classes.
As a workaround it has to be cleaned "manually":
Gradle should do this work automatically.

The `clean` task only deletes the build directory so there shouldn't be any issue. Setting the classes directory to a directory outside of buildDir is custom and will need to be added to the clean task.
