It would be useful to have a way of adding a plugin to a configuration. For example, I have a Grails plugin whose JAR I want to add to the host project's runtime classpath. It seems like an esoteric request, but there's definitely a reason for it. Ah, I remember now: it packages some classes that are used when running Grails in an embedded servlet container. The servlet container uses the runtime configuration, so I have to get the plugin JAR into that configuration somehow.

Here's the original mailing list thread:


Adam's suggested syntax is:

dependencies {
    runtime plugins[myplugin].classpath
