Gradle and Embedded Jetty access log

The standard Jetty plugin for Gradle has limited features. For example, there seems to have no option to configure access logs with this plugin. Luckily there is a much more feature rich jetty plugin called JettyEclipse for Gradle. This can be found here. Configuring this plugin is quite easy. Add the following into your build.graddle.
buildscript {
    repositories {
    dependencies {
        classpath (group: 'com.sahlbach.gradle', name: 'gradle-jetty-eclipse-plugin', version: '1.9.+')
apply plugin: 'jettyEclipse'

jettyEclipse {
    System.setProperty("catalina.home", "${project.buildDir}")   
    requestLog = new File("${project.buildDir}/logs/access.log")

Then run gradle clean jettyEclipseRun
