How to define default tasks in Gradle?


Gradle allows you to define one or more default tasks for your build (build.gradle file). Look at the below example: defaultTasks will declare the default tasks in your build.

defaultTasks 'clean', 'run'
						
task clean << {
        println 'Default Task - Cleaning!'
}
task run << {
        println 'Default Task - Running!'
}
task mySpecTask << {
        println "I'm not a default task!"
}

Run "gradle -q"

Default Task - Cleaning!
Default Task - Running!

This is equivalent to running gradle clean run In a multi-project build every subproject can have its own specific default tasks. If a subproject does not specify default tasks, the default tasks of the parent project are used.
