Since we use both eclipse and netbeans for development and gradle has no netbeans plugin yet we need a common way to declare dependencies. Right now we have an ivy.xml that is parsed by some groovy code into gradle (http://issues.gradle.org/browse/GRADLE-197). Talking to Hans Docktor at the KA JUG he suggested using the ivy.xml that gradle generates. I could not find the task that generates the ivy.xml, the only place where if found something mentioned in the documentation was in the uploadArchives task. I want to have a task like exportIvy that exports my gradle dependencies as ivy.xml into the current directory.
Take a look at GRADLE-1811. The current workaround is documented there.
Hope that helps!
Yes it the workaround works for now thanks.
