In the documentation, it mentions being able to get a “resolution result”, but it doesn’t say where it can be gotten from.
Since Gradle 1.2 there is also a new programmatic API to access the resolved dependency information. The dependency reports (see the previous paragraph) are using this API behind the hood. The API lets you to walk the resolved dependency graph and provides information about the dependencies. With the coming releases the API will grow to provide more information about the resolution result. For more information about the API please refer to the javadocs on ResolvableDependencies.getResolutionResult().
One example on stackoverflow pointed to conf.resolvedConfiguration.resolutionResult, but there’s mention of resolutionResult on the Resolved Configuration (http://www.gradle.org/docs/current/javadoc/org/gradle/api/artifacts/ResolvedConfiguration.html) javadoc page. What is the parent object that a resolution result comes from? And is it going to be for a single configuration?
