[GRADLE-2462] BuildLauncher.setStandardInput does not forward input until EOF has been reached. Created: 04/Sep/12  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

I have attempted to use BuildLauncher.setStandardInput to provide the ability for the user in NetBeans to provide input for the script. However, I have noticed, that the input provided by the above mentioned InputStream is not available for the script until the InputStream returns EOF. EOF is never normally sent, since that would prevent the user to provide additional input.

To reproduce the problem call "System.in.read()" in a task of a build script, and provide an InputStream for BuildLauncher.setStandardInput which never returns EOF. The read method will block and wait forever. The expected behaviour is that the read method returns after providing even a single byte.
