[GRADLE-2616] Remove creating of named container elements via property read in container configuration closures Created: 03/Jan/13 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
Currently, to create a named element in a container you can simply read a variable with the name you want. For example, to create a configuration called 'custom'…
The problem is that this uses a surprising resolution strategy. It is effectively DELEGATE_FIRST, if the delegate has it, then owner, then propertyMissing() on the delegate if the owner doesn't have it. This is at odds with with our otherwise universal use of DELEGATE_FIRST.
This behaviour should be removed, which would mean that users would need to effectively invoke the method with this name.
