I'm manually adding javadoc elements to a few entries of a classpath file generated by the eclipseClasspath task.
I've can easily locate the proper library that I need to add the doc element too, but the javadocPath property of the Library class is of type FileReference, which is an interface.

I can't find any example of classes that implement the FileReference interface in the platform, what is proper way to set this property?

eclipse {
classpath {
file {
whenMerged { classpath ->

for (entry in classpath.entries)

if (entry.path.endsWith('gwt-dispatch-1.2.0.jar'))
entry.javadocPath = ?
