Gradle init makes script that fails. Missing method providedCompile()

(Scott Palmer) #1

I noticed that other scripts from some open source projects failed with the same error: “Could not find method providedCompile()…”. I thought it was an incompatibility with the version of gradle I was using, but then I discovered that “gradle init” from the same version of gradle is creating the same code.

Here’s what I tried:

$ hg clone
$ cd scm-manager
 $ gradle init
Maven to Gradle conversion is an incubating feature.
