Android Question

why doesn't task wrapper function work

There are many good suggestions to how to fix gradle versions, but some of them are outdated or I just couldn't find the paths that were suggested. one solution did work for me is project>project structure>project>gradle version.

Here I can change it to the supported version, and successfully builds the project.

A small error in the the javascript code, so a change is made to it.

Ionic build android
, now something wrong occurrs here.
Minimum supprted Gradle version is 2.14.1. Current version is 2.13.
.

But in the project/platforms/android/build.gradle

task wrapper(type: Wrapper){
gradleVersion = '2.14.1'
}


and from this link, it suggests that this is the way set your gradle wrapper.

So I am expecting in project/platforms/android/gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties to have
distributionUrl=http\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.14.1-all.zip
, instead this is what it has
distributionUrl=http\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.13-all.zip
.

Can't make direct change to this file project/platforms/android/gradle/wrapper/gradle-wrapper.properties, because after each build it will revert back to
gradle-2.13-all.zip
.

What is going on here? can't find anything that explain why it keeps on changing the
distributionUrl=http\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.13-all.zip
. Would anyone be kindly explain this please? Maybe something very stupid that I have missed. Thank you.

Update

'gradlew wrapper throws error, because certain wrapper doesn't exist under maven and the sub
build.gradle
uses it to download
2.14.1.prom
and
2.14.1.jar
. This link will explain it.

Found problem

The problem why it keeps on changing back to
2.13-all.zip
is because of this line,
var distributionUrl = process.env['CORDOVA_ANDROID_GRADLE_DISTRIBUTION_URL'] || 'http\\://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.13-all.zip';
in the
[project name]/platforms/android/cordova/lib/builders/GradleBuilder.js
instead of
~/android/lib/GradleBuilder.js
. (Line 164)
