[GRADLE-278] Automatically set version number Created: 23/Oct/08  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 0.4

Type: Improvement

In the init-Task of the Java plugin do the following, if the project.version is not yet set:

  • get the latest version number for the current project module (project.group/project.name) from Ivy using the uploadResolver(s) from uploadLibs
  • if no published version was found, assume 0.0.0
  • if the (system) property 'major' is set, increment the major version number and set minor/patch to 0, similar for properties 'minor' and 'patch', otherwise if the current version is not a snapshot version, increment the patch number and add '-SNAPSHOT' (configurable?) to the version (this ensures that using 'latest.integration' as version in a dependency will really get the latest version)
  • set project.version to the calculated value

This should be quite easy to implement (if you know the Ivy-API) and would implement a default behavior which can easily be ignored (by setting the project.version manually).

This allows the user to use a call like the following to create a new build with the next minor version number:

  • gradle -Dminor uploadLibs
    The version number is always incremented (or stays the same for snapshots)
