[GRADLE-509] Check all UG samples for bugs that might only show up at execution time. Created: 28/May/09  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

This is an issue for all code samples where we don't check the functionality. All of our sample are compiled. Due to the dynamic nature of Groovy some bug are not detected during compile. Here is an example:

task ftp << {
ant {
taskdef(name: 'ftp',
classname: 'org.apache.tools.ant.taskdefs.optional.net.FTP',
classpath: configurations.ftpAntTask.asPath())
ftp(server: "ftp.apache.org", userid: "anonymous", password: "me@myorg.com")

Unknown macro: { fileset(dir}


In such a case we should additionally execute the script, just to make sure that this works without exception. We might have to rewrite the examples to something that has less side-effects then an FTP call.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

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

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!
