[GRADLE-2330] idea plguin: Resources should be added as module dependencies Created: 31/May/12  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

I have a unit test that load a resource using using ..class.getResource(). The resource is in the src/test/resources folder. When running the unit test using gradle it works as expected.
When I generate a idea module from my gradle file then the resource folder is added as a source folder and that seems fair. But when I run the unit test from within IntelliJ (a IntelliJ run configuration) then the test fails since src/test/resources is not in the module dependencies.
I have fixed it by doing this:

idea {

{ scopes.TEST.plus+= configurations.detachedConfiguration(dependencies.create(files('src/test/resources'))) scopes.RUNTIME.plus+= configurations.detachedConfiguration(dependencies.create(files('src/main/resources'))) }

That will add the module dependencies that I need to run my test. It also fixes the similar problem for runtime dependencies.

I think the resources folders should be included as dependencies by default.
