[GRADLE-2832] IDEA plugin isn't downloading sources when mavenLocal() is used Created: 10/Jul/13  Updated: 10/Feb/17  Resolved: 10/Feb/17

I am trying to get downloading of sources to work with a multimodule project.
Using the following entry gives me the correct IDEA-Project, except sources and javadoc aren't being downloaded.
Any idea why this doesn't work?


allprojects {
apply plugin: 'maven'
apply plugin: 'idea'

idea {
module {
downloadJavadoc = true
downloadSources = true

And my repo-config:

repositories {
mavenRepo url: "http://repo.springsource.org/libs-milestone"
mavenRepo url: "https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/snapshots/"
mavenRepo url: "http://source.mysema.com/maven2/releases/"
mavenRepo url: "http://repo.maven.apache.org/maven2"

configurations {
all*.exclude module: 'commons-logging'

So you don't get dependency sources in the IDE? Which exact steps are you taking?

Comment by Gradle Forums [ 10/Jul/13 ]

The steps are:
gradle build (just to make sure the project builds)
gradle idea
Then open idea and open existing project (I am NOT using the builtin Idea-Gradle-support).
I can only jump into sources of libs that already are i my local Maven-Repo. No additional sources are being downloaded.

Usually this works fine. My best guess is that the problem is related to `mavenLocal()`. Why do you declare that repository?

Dang, here we go.
After removing mavenLocal() half of the internet started flowing onto my disk
Now I got my sources.
I was just hoping to keep as many of my dependencies as possible in one place.
Looks like I will have to live with that. Could be worse.

Thanks for the help!
