Clojure and Gradle: clojuresque can't find /src/main/clojure files

Hello. I set up a sample gradle project that I would like to include some Clojure with. My build fails during unit test execution on the clojuresque plugin with:

    09:52:35.140 [ERROR] [system.err] Exception in thread "main" Could not locate CustomClojureApplicativeProgrammingFunctions__init.class or CustomClojureApplicativeProgrammingFunctions.clj on classpath., compiling:(CustomClojureApplicativeProgrammingFunctionsTest.clj:4:1)

Here are the relevant sections of my build.gradle file:

buildscript { ext { springBootVersion = '1.2.2.RELEASE' } repositories { mavenLocal() mavenCentral() maven { url '' } jcenter() } dependencies { classpath("org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-gradle-plugin:${springBootVersion}") classpath "" } }

apply plugin: ‘java’
apply plugin: ‘eclipse’
apply plugin: ‘idea’
apply plugin: ‘spring-boot’
apply plugin: ‘war’
apply plugin: ‘maven’
apply plugin: ‘groovy’
apply plugin: “nebula-clojure”

sourceCompatibility = 1.8
targetCompatibility = 1.8

repositories {
maven { url “JFrog” }
maven { url ‘’ }

clojure.aotCompile = true

compileClojure {
classpath = project.files(classpath, project.sourceSets.main.resources.srcDirs)
clojureTest {
classpath = project.files(classpath, project.sourceSets.test.resources.srcDirs)

dependencies {

// compile("org.clojure:clojure:1.5.1")



Now, I also saw this post which is relevant to my problem:

The clojuresque author mentions that the tests look in /src/test/clojure, but I wonder if the tests also look in /src/main/clojure for .clj files? The line that mine is bombing on is the namespace directive inside the test case, where it tries to reference the .clj file that resides in /src/main/clojure so that it can pull in the function definitions that it is exercising the code for:

(use 'CustomClojureApplicativeProgrammingFunctions)

I have tried adding sourceSets to build.gradle in an effort to reference the main code from the test harness, but clojuresque never finds the code in /src/main/clojure, as it fails on task ‘clojuretest’. I am running the gradle build inside of Intellij 13.1. Has anyone else successfully executed clojure tests from Gradle which reference /src/main/clojure .clj files using clojuresque?

Thanks in advance for any insight on this.
