I have ported HyperSQL to Gradle, using ant.importBuild, and a TON of customization because the nested Ant build files are so complex. I’d very much like to use the maven plugin, but I have searched and searched and I haven’t found a clue about how or if I can specify the jar files to be published unless I use the Java plugin… which I can’t use.
(Actually, the user guide page for the Maven plugin says something like, with configuration work one can do it without the Java plugin, but no hint about how to do that).
I believe that uploadArchives uploads whatever’s in the archives configuration, but when I try to reverse-engineer with a working project of mine that does uploadArchives with the Java plugin, even after a successful uploadArchives, configurations.archives.allDependencies.size() is still 0. ? … and I don’t even know if it’s possible to manually add literal , local files (build through Ant targets) somehow to a Configuration.
