Gradle Goodness: Change Gradle Wrapper Script Name

With the Gradle Wrapper task we can specify the name of the generated script files. By default the names are gradlew and gradlew.bat. The Wrapper task has the property scriptFile. We can set a different value for this property to let Gradle generate the script files with a different name.

In the following example we use the value mvnw (they will be surprised the build is so fast... ;-)) as the value:

task gradleWrapper(type: Wrapper) {
    scriptFile = 'mvnw'

Let's run the gradleWrapper task:

$ gradle gradleWrapper


Total time: 8.597 secs
$ ls mvnw*
mvnw     mvnw.bat

Written with Gradle 3.1.
