Gradle 2.0 IDEA plugin: adding a custom configuration to scope throws ClassCastException:
java.io.File cannot be cast to org.gradle.api.artifacts.Configuration
This may be related to http://issues.gradle.org/browse/GRADLE-3101. However, as suggested in the workaround, I tried adding the idea module scope towards the end of the build script, and encountered the
exception: java.io.File cannot be cast to org.gradle.api.artifacts.Configuration
Confirmed that this works fine in Gradle 1.12
Here is the build script:
apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'idea'
scopes.PROVIDED.plus += configurations.provided
