Gradle exclude plugin in main project for specific subproject(s)

I am working on a larger project that contains many subprojects which are all build with gradle.
Generally all projects are java projects, therefore in the main build.gradle script

allprojects {
apply plugin: 'java'

is specified for all projects.

However I need to either remove the plugin for a certain subtree of projects or explicitly exclude the the projects from the plugin.

Heres a rough overview of the project layout

+ Main
+-- javaApplications
+-- javaLibs
+-- Android

Android/* does not need the java plugin.
What is the best solution to achieve this? Note: I cannot change the project structure.

This should do the trick (when placed in root build.gradle script)

configure(allprojects - project(':Android')) { //or ':Android:AndroidApps' not sure
    println "applying java plugin to $project"
    apply plugin: 'java'
