[GRADLE-1444] sources are not downloaded when dependency is using a classifier Created: 15/Mar/11  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

Resolution: Won't Fix Votes: 3


when using

dependencies {
  compile group: 'net.sf.json-lib', name: 'json-lib', version: '2.4', classifier: 'jdk15'

and executing the ideaModule, the librarie is properly downloaded and configured in my iml file, but not the sources.
it works well for all my other dependencies but none of those uses a classifier.

sources also seems available : http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/net/sf/json-lib/json-lib/2.4/json-lib-2.4-jdk15-sources.jar

It would be very nice is sources using a classifier could also be downloaded.

I faced the problem described above. I'm trying to build flash project. Dependencies which are defined with classifier could not be found(gradle 1.0 milestone 6)during compilation.And in error log there is no info about classifier.

Please note I use gradlefx. Was this issue solved or is there any workaround on it?
Thanks in advance!
