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
:gradleWrapper

BUILD SUCCESSFUL
