15.8.1. Archive naming
The default name for a generated archive is projectName-version.type For example:

However, with the java plugin, the default output of gradle jar in build/libs is

Personally, I think it is important that the version number be in the filename. Otherwise it is very easy to accidentally use an older, incompatible version and much harder to keep track of what version is being used by outsiders.

Possible that this could be resolved, it was caused by this task:

task newcopyToLib(dependsOn: configurations.default.buildArtifacts,
type: Copy) {
into "$buildDir/output/lib"
from configurations.default
from configurations.default.allArtifacts*.file

Adam Murdoch said a better task def that would not cause this would be:

In the above, configurations.default.allArtifacts*.file is being evaluated before the version is set in the subproject. You can fix this using something like:

task newcopyToLib(type: Copy)

{ into "$buildDir/output/lib" from configurations.default from configurations.default.allArtifactFiles }
