I'm not sures is it bug or not

Why processResources.source returns string 'main resources' and not path to E:\projects\mytest\src\main\resources

apply plugin: 'war'
task viewPath << {
    println processResources.source
    println processResources.destinationDir
Executing command: ":viewPath"
main resources

The processResources.source property is of type FileCollection (have a look at http://gradle.org/docs/current/dsl/org.gradle.api.tasks.Copy.html). So, the statement println processResources.source is going to be printing out it's toString() value, which is 'main resources'. Instead, you can do something like this:


{ println it }

This will print out the source files, not the source directory.

You might be better off using sourceSets.main.resources.srcDirs and sourceSets.main.output.resourcesDir (have a look at http://gradle.org/docs/current/dsl/org.gradle.api.tasks.SourceSet.html)
