[GRADLE-2800] Checkstyle plugin does not support reading config file from classpath or via URL Created: 20/Jun/13 Updated: 10/Feb/17 Resolved: 10/Feb/17
According to http://checkstyle.sourceforge.net/ant... the Checkstyle task can take a config attribute which can be a file, BUT it also can be a relative location which it'll lookup using ClassLoader.getResource(). The Gradle checkstyle task though enforces that the input be a real file.
Additionally the checkstyle task (via Ant) supports a URL, and Gradle does not expose it that field or possibility.

I would like to work on this issue but the requirements are not clear to me.
Currently, configFile is a mandatory attribute for Checkstyle plugin, I would suggest to make it optional, add a new attribute configURL and use it if it set instead of configFile.
What do you think?
