[GRADLE-1827] Project.getProperty() could be overloaded to have an optional object argument for the default return Created: 11/Oct/11 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
For those cases where a property value may or may not be set, it would be convenient to call getProperty('propName', defaultVal)
Sure, the alternative is to call hasProperty() and then decide what to do from there, or wrap with a try/catch block for MissingPropertyException and assign to value in try block and default in catch block.
This simplifies the case where a default value is known beforehand, but optionally overriding the value is desired.
