Ivy publish for sources and javadoc

hi there

I’m trying to publish a jar , well actually 3 jars - classes,sources and javadoc,by using plugin ‘ivy-publish’. But executing ‘gradle publish’ always ends in:

Could not parse Ivy file file:/C:/dev/ie8-git/services/restgenericclient/build/publications/ivyJava/ivy.xml

Problem occurred while parsing ivy file: Cannot add artifact ‘iengine-service-restgenericclient.jar(sources)’ to configuration ‘sources’ of module tie#iengine-service-restgenericclient;1.0.0 because this configuration doesn’t exist!

build.gradle looks as following ->

apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'eclipse-wtp'
apply plugin: 'ivy-publish'
  group = 'tie'
version = '1.0.0'
archivesBaseName = 'iengine-service-restgenericclient'
  compileJava {
  sourceCompatibility = 1.6
  targetCompatibility = 1.6
}
  jar {
  manifest {
    attributes 'Implementation-Title': 'REST Generic Client',
    'Implementation-Version': version
  }
}
  task sourcesJar(type: Jar, dependsOn: classes) {
  classifier = 'sources'
  from sourceSets.main.allSource
 }
  task javadocJar(type: Jar, dependsOn: javadoc) {
  classifier = 'javadoc'
  from javadoc.destinationDir
}
  artifacts {
  archives sourcesJar
  archives javadocJar
}
  repositories {
  mavenCentral()
}
  dependencies {
  compile 'org.apache.commons:commons-lang3:3.3.2'
  compile 'org.springframework:spring-web:4.0.6.RELEASE'
  compile 'org.apache.httpcomponents:httpclient:4.3.5'
        compile 'com.fasterxml.jackson.core:jackson-core:2.4.2'
  compile 'com.fasterxml.jackson.core:jackson-databind:2.4.2'
  compile 'com.fasterxml.jackson.core:jackson-annotations:2.4.2'
    testCompile 'junit:junit:4.11'
  testCompile 'org.hamcrest:hamcrest-all:1.3'
  testCompile 'org.mockito:mockito-all:1.9.5'
}
  publishing {
    publications {
   ivyJava(IvyPublication) {
      module archivesBaseName
      from components.java
      artifact(sourcesJar) {
        type "sources"
        conf "sources"
      }
      artifact(javadocJar) {
        type "javadoc"
        conf "javadoc"
      }
        }
  }
}

Does anybody know how to publish sources & javadoc artefact to my ivy repository?

thanks for help. cyrill

The error is because you are specifying configurations for the artifacts (“sources” and “javadoc”) that don’t exist. You should use one of the existing configurations unless you have a reason to use a separate configuration. The “runtime” configuration is probably what you want.

Thanks for your answer. I’d like to seperate “runtime” from “sources” configuration. For example in ivy.xml of aopalliance in my local gradle cache (C:\Users\tiezad.gradle\caches\modules-

2\metadata-2.12\descriptors\aopalliance\aopalliance\1.0\8eb80c2e7e631bf662f14a25bb19e6c0) those two configurations are seperated as well.

   classpath, and is not transitive."/>
    <conf name="runtime" visibility="public" description="this scope indicates that the dependency is not required for compilation, but is for execution. It is in the runtime and test classpaths,
   but not the compile classpath." extends="compile"/>

    <conf name="system" visibility="public" description="this scope is similar to provided except that you have to provide the JAR which contains it explicitly. The artifact is always available and

Is it possible to add this configuration “sources”?

You should just be able to define those configurations then:

configurations {
  sources
  javadoc
}

Still same error.

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.
  * What went wrong:
Execution failed for task ':publishIvyJavaPublicationToIvyRepository'.
> Failed to publish publication 'ivyJava' to repository 'ivy'
   > Could not parse Ivy file file:/C:/dev/ie8-git/services/restgenericclient/build/publications/ivyJava/ivy.xml
      > Problem occurred while parsing ivy file: Cannot add artifact 'iengine-service-restgenericclient.jar(source)' to configuration 'sources' of module tie#iengine-service-restgenericclient;1.0.0 because this configuration doesn't exist!

I’ve found a workaround.

descriptor.withXml {
                                asNode().configurations[0].appendNode('conf', [name: 'sources', visibility: 'public'])
                                asNode().configurations[0].appendNode('conf', [name: 'javadoc', visibility: 'public']) }

This way I can add those two configurations manually to ivy.xml.

Could it be that ivy-plugin doesn’t support other configurations than default & runtime?

Looks like a defect. You can work around it as such:

publications {
        ivyJava(IvyPublication) {
            from components.java
            configurations.create('sources')
              artifact(sourceJar) {
                conf "sources"
                classifier "sources"
            }
        }
    }

It worked… thx for helping out.
