Reflection parameter names

The Java compiler may strip the parameter names of the generated class files. The task automatically instructs the javac backed whether or not to include the parameter names in the class files.

The default is to include them.

You don't need to pass the -parameters flag to the compiler by default.

However, you can turn off the inclusion of parameter names by specifying the ParameterNames parameter:
	SourceDirectories: src,
	ParameterNames: false

The above compilation task will result in generating class files that do not include method parameter names in them.

If you need to turn off parameter names, you may also want to consider stripping the debug information.
