Since Eclipse Photon supports separation of test source sets in the classpath, we should configure that within the Gradle build.


The following workaround has been proposed by howlger until Gradle and Buildship properly support the new feature in Eclipse.

apply plugin: 'eclipse'
eclipse.classpath.file.whenMerged {

	// separate output folders required to set the 'test' attribute
	entries.find { it.path == 'src/main/java' }.output = 'bin/main'
	def testSrc = entries.find { it.path == 'src/test/java' }
	testSrc.output = 'bin/test'
	testSrc.entryAttributes['test'] = 'true'

	// libraries visible for test sources only?
	entries.forEach { entry ->
		def entryIn = { it.find { file(entry.path).equals(it) } }
		if (entry.kind == 'lib') {
			entry.entryAttributes['test'] =
				entryIn(configurations.testRuntimeClasspath) &&
