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.

Exception Vs Error
An error is an irrecoverable condition occurring at runtime like out of memory error. These kind of jvm errors cannot be handled at runtime. Exceptions are because of condition failures, which can be handled easily at runtime.
Famous Quotations
It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.
