not following - eclipse caches build files too; it doesn't need to build anything
so why would gradle be faster to run the arquillian tests than eclipse ?
Maybe I misunderstood your initial comment...just read it as arquillian became
faster to run because it was using gradle...which might be true - but just trying
to grok what magic it does (caching build files can't be the answer since eclipse does
that too and just launches the vm with junit which triggers arquillian).

ah okey interesting - and yeah, this is example of what eclipse would need too...
the gradle eclipse plugin uses the tooling api afaik (albeit very slow last time I looked).

What are the specifics you can't get from gradle tooling api ?
