I wrote a custom task of type 'Test' and works in versions 1.1-1.3, but when run with version 1.4 of gradle, I now get the error message:

  • What went wrong:
    A problem was found with the configuration of task ':runIntegrationTests'.
    > No value has been specified for property 'binResultsDir'.

Attached is the full stack trace of the exception.

Work around is a simple one: adding the following line to the test task

binResultsDir = file("$buildDir/binary-results/")

But that causes a warning if gradle version is 1.3 or below.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

I don't see this behavior anymore with Gradle 3.3 for the following example build script:

apply plugin: 'groovy'

sourceSets {
    integrationTest {
        groovy.srcDir file('src/integTest/groovy')
        resources.srcDir file('src/integTest/resources')
        compileClasspath += sourceSets.main.output + configurations.testRuntime
        runtimeClasspath += output + compileClasspath

task integrationTest(type: Test) {
    testClassesDir = sourceSets.integrationTest.output.classesDir
    classpath = sourceSets.integrationTest.runtimeClasspath
