gradle_build man page

gradle_build ā€” build Gradle project in offline, local mode


%gradle_build [options] [-- Gradle-arguments]


gradle_build macro builds Gradle project and generates reactor structure information to be used by mvn_install.

By default Gradle goal build is executed, as well as some additional XMvn-specific tasks. If -f is specified then goal assemble is executed instead of build.

Any arguments after -- are passed directly to Gradle. See gradle(1) for more information on availability of Gradle options.


-d, --xmvn-debug

Enable XMvn debugging output. This option causes XMvn to write verbose debugging information to standard output. Debugging information includes at least details about artifact resolution from system repositories.

-f, --force

Skip compilation and execution of unit and integration tests. This option causes Gradle goal assemble to be executed instead of default goal build.

-i, --skip-install

Skip artifact installation. This option disables generation of reactor structure information so that future calls to mvn_install will not result in installation of artifacts produced in current Maven reactor.

-j, --skip-javadoc

Accepted for compatibility with %mvn_build, but otherwise ignored.

-s, --singleton

Enable singleton packaging (one artifact per package). This option causes artifacts with identical artifactId to be installed as part of the same subpackage. This behavior can be further customized by adding more specific packaging rules with mvn_package.

-X, --debug

Enable Maven debugging output. Implies -d. This option causes Gradle to write verbose debugging information to standard output.



Run XMvn in online mode. If xmvn_bootstrap RPM macro is defined to any value then Gradle is ran in online mode. Otherwise Gradle is ran in offline mode. Online mode of Gradle allows missing dependency artifacts to be fetched from remote repositories. This behavior is mostly useful when bootstrapping new packages, which dependecies have not yet been packaged.
