[GRADLE-2694] Wrong setter used by DSL Created: 26/Feb/13  Updated: 16/Jan/17  Resolved: 16/Jan/17

Status: Resolved

Affects Version/s: 1.3, 1.4

My custom plugin extension has the following methods:

Depending on the syntax used and the type of the parameter I get the following method called:

foo "14" -> foo(String)
foo 14 -> foo(int)
foo = "14" -> setFoo(String)
foo = 14 -> setFoo(String)

As you can see in the #4 case, the wrong setter is called.

The following code calls the correct methods with Gradle 3.3. I am going to close the issue.

def myExt = extensions.create('myExt', MyExtension)

task callExtMethods {
    doLast {
        myExt.foo "14"
        myExt.foo 14
        myExt.foo = "14"
        myExt.foo = 14

class MyExtension {
    def foo(int a) {
        println 'foo(int)'
    def foo(String a) {
        println 'foo(String)'
    def setFoo(int a) {
        println 'setFoo(int)'
    def setFoo(String a) {
        println 'setFoo(String)'

The output:

$ gradle callExtMethods
