Can gradle run distributed Maven module tests from artifactory?

I have a very LARGE test suite, 14,000+ tests. The vast majority of them are Integration tests. In order to get through them in a decent amount of time, I need to run these tests in parallel. I have a maven structure, multiple modules. I also have an artifactory server where we deploy the maven build to.

The question is: can I pull down the deliverables from the artifactory and run the tests from the test-jar and pom files? Is there a specific sequence or way to do this with gradle? Maven doesn’t seem to support this, but how else are other people doing this?
