I am trying to add a jar file to the ant runtime classpath, but it does not seem like gradle is putting the jar on the classpath.

I am attaching a very simple gradle project. It contains one groovy file and one java file with a short build.gradle. To build this project, run this command:

gradlew -Dbuild.compiler=org.codehaus.groovy.eclipse.ant.GroovyCompilerAdapter compileJava

This should grab the compiler adapter jar from the maven dependencies, add it to the ant runtime classpath, and use the compiler adapter to compile both the groovy file and the java file.

But, unfortunately, I get this:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* Where:
Build file '/Users/andrew/NonEclipse/gradle/gradleproject/build.gradle'

* What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':compileJava'.
Cause: Class not found: org.codehaus.groovy.eclipse.ant.GroovyCompilerAdapter

* Try:
Run with -s or -d option to get more details. Run with -S option to get the full (very verbose) stacktrace.

This problem should be reproducible from the attached project.
