[GRADLE-1656] The Checkstyle plugin doesn't support ommiting the console output Created: 04/Jul/11 Updated: 04/Jan/13 Resolved: 27/Nov/12
The Gradle Checkstyle plugin by default creates an XML result file and also dumps everything in plain text to the console output (ant task: formatter: plain). This is not desirable as some projects produce several thousand lines of issues thus cluttering the regular Gradle console output.
The plugin should have a configuration to switch the console output off.
The issue was also mentioned on the mailing list: http://gradle.1045684.n5.nabble.com/Checkstyle-issues-td3402034.html

Fix submitted via pull request. Adds usePlainFormatter option which defaults to true but if set to false, suppresses the console output whilst keeping the xml output.
will not show the violations on the console.
