[GRADLE-2343] gradle --ui - invoking task without dependencies (-a) calls the <task>-a and fails Created: 09/Jun/12  Updated: 16/Jan/17  Resolved: 16/Jan/17

Start the gui, you get a tree of tasks. Right click on a task and choose 'Execute ignoring dependencies (-a)' it fails:

Executing command: ":clean-a"

FAILURE: Could not determine which tasks to execute.

  • What went wrong:
    Task 'clean-a' not found in root project 'Minothesaurus'. Some candidates are: 'clean'.
  • Try:
    Run gradle tasks to get a list of available tasks.


Total time: 2.083 secs

The same for all tasks - it simply adds '-a' to the task name.

The Gradle GUI has been deprecated and is scheduled to be removed with Gradle 4.0. We are not going to work on this issue anymore.
