Accepted answer

The job of compile is to compile sources, so it won't typically do anything related to processing resources. However, the resources need to be in the class directory for run, package, test, console, and anything else that uses the fullClasspath. This is done by fullClasspath combining exportedProducts, which are the classes and resources generated by the current project, and dependencyClasspath, which are the classpath entries from dependencies.

The appropriate solution depends on what needs the resources. From the command line, run exported-products to do a compile as well as copy-resources. Programmatically, you will typically want to depend on fullClasspath or exportedProducts.

As a side note, you can typically find out what tasks do what using the inspect command.
