BuiltArtifacts

interface BuiltArtifacts


Represents a Collection of BuiltArtifact produced by a org.gradle.api.Task.

Tasks in Android Gradle Plugin can produce more than one file in the output folder so any Artifact with a Artifact.kind of type com.android.build.api.artifact.ArtifactKind.DIRECTORY can actually contain several produced File. For instance, when dealing with multi-apk, there will be several manifest files or APKs produced by the Android Gradle Plugin.

Each produced file can be identified with unique metadata like the list of filters and/or version code or version name. This instance will allow producer and consumer org.gradle.api.Tasks to easily match produced files with this metadata without relying on name mangling or other custom solutions.

Simple use of this facility can look like :


abstract class MyTask @inject constructor(val objectFactory: ObjectFactory): DefaultTask() {
    @get:InputDirectory
    abstract val input: DirectoryProperty
    @get:OutputDirectory
    abstract val output: DirectoryProperty
    @get:Internal
    abstract val artifactsLoader: Property

    @TaskAction
    fun taskAction() {
         val builtArtifacts= artifactsLoader.get().load(
              objectFactory, input.get())

         TODO : TBD what will be surfaced here

         newBuiltArtifacts.save(output.get()))
    }
}

This BuiltArtifacts will abstract access to these produced files and provided some metadata associated with each file to be able to identify filters, version code or version name.
