The linked to forum issue is about a failing ant import because the ant build uses Ivy. In the forum post there's a workaround that involves explicitly adding the Ivy dependency to ant via messing with the classloader. There should be a more controlled way of doing this.

Is there a way of solving this issue without messing with the classloader?

I have Ant+Ivy combination which I want to import and Gradle fails with loading Ivy dependency.

Gradle is using own Ant library, not the one in the Ant installation in ANT_HOME, but it gives me a warning that library should exists on ANT_HOME\lib.

Tell me if I am wrong!
