SourceSet

API Documentation:SourceSet

A SourceSet represents a logical group of Java source and resources.

See the example below how SourceSet 'main' is accessed and how the SourceDirectorySet 'java' is configured to exclude some package from compilation.

apply plugin: 'java'

sourceSets {
  main {
    java {
      exclude 'some/unwanted/package/**'
    }
  }
}
