env: gradle wrapper v. 4.2.1.
we have a standalone gradle plugin which needs to use org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient:4.5.+
This dependency is, of course, defined in the plugin’s gradle. Running unit tests works fine
Now we are trying to run the plugin in a subproject of another gradle project. Also the httpclient dependency is defined in the subprojects dependencies but it is not used at all, because we always receive a
which clearly shows that some httpclient version < 4.4 is used (in fact we have seen that it is 4.3.5 which is downloaded to the gradle cache - most probably gradle’s “own” httpclient?!?).
We have tried all possibilities to define the dependency, but could not solve the problem. Do you have any suggestions?
thx in advance
