[GRADLE-2269] "gradle dependencies" does not show file dependencies Created: 02/May/12  Updated: 16/Jan/17  Resolved: 16/Jan/17

Status: Resolved
Project: Gradle
Affects Version/s: 1.0-rc-3

Consider the following build script:

apply plugin: 'java'


{ compile files('commons-logging-1.1.jar') }

Then, try to invoke "gradle dependencies". You'll see that the compile file dependency is not shown.

This is still an issue in 3.1 and hugely confusing if you're not expecting it. It may impact what IDEs are able to present as well. For example, IDEA correctly detects files dependencies if you drill down into the module detail, but the External Libraries tree at the bottom of the Project sidebar only shows the downloaded dependencies.

As announced on the Gradle blog we are planning to completely migrate issues from JIRA to GitHub.

We intend to prioritize issues that are actionable and impactful while working more closely with the community. Many of our JIRA issues are inactionable or irrelevant. We would like to request your help to ensure we can appropriately prioritize JIRA issues you’ve contributed to.

Please confirm that you still advocate for your JIRA issue before December 10th, 2016 by:

  • Checking that your issues contain requisite context, impact, behaviors, and examples as described in our published guidelines.
  • Leave a comment on the JIRA issue or open a new GitHub issue confirming that the above is complete.

We look forward to collaborating with you more closely on GitHub. Thank you for your contribution to Gradle!

As reported by Nathan Williams few days ago, this seems to be still an issue in recent Gradle.
