for a normal script you can set a break point in your ide and it will 
stop there. But for gradle you  would have to start gradle itself with 
debugging.. so for example something like

export GRADLE_OPTS="-Xdebug 

and then start your gradle, with breakpoint set.

and if everything fails, println is your friend ;)
