If you are trying to use abbreviation to call a Gradle task using Camel-Casing you would get an ambiguous error if you have multiple tasks with the similar cases. As you can see I have two tasks in my build.gradle file that have a similar name - the way you can fix this issue is by calling the tasks separately.

code2care@mac gradle-examples % gradle -q myTask1 myTask2
myTask1
myTask2
