Looking for a way to force gradle to download all dependencies, including those of subprojects. The answer reported by Peter here http://gradle.1045684.n5.nabble.com/Fast-way-to-download-all-external-dependencies-td4423622.html doesn’t seem to work, I just get:
No signature of method: org.gradle.api.internal.artifacts.dsl.dependencies.DefaultDependencyHandler.dependsOn() is applicable for argument types: (java.util.ArrayList) values: [[org.gradle.api.internal.artifacts.dsl.dependencies.DefaultDependencyHandler@47bd2241, …]]
I guess because “dependencies” will trigger the dependencies DSL. However, trying to look up the dependencies task by name (ie tasks[‘dependencies’] also fails, for both the root project and subprojects:
Task with name ‘dependencies’ not found in root project ‘myproject’.
Task with path ‘:subproject-name:dependencies’ not found in root project ‘myproject’
Maybe the depencencies task only gets added later on? I dunno.
Anyway, any tips on how to get Gradle to download all the subproject dependencies without listing them all on the command line?
