ModuleDependency.artifact() not working with 2.0 nightly

I have dependency declaration in build file as follows:

accept('eu.plumbr:agent:' + version) {
    artifact {
      name = 'plumbr-test'
      type = 'jar'

This works fine with gradle 1.11 and 1.12, but current 2.0 nightly gives me:

So it ignores artefact name completely.

Still does not work with latest nightly 2.1 :frowning:

Where did you get this from? I’m not sure if it was ever officially supported.

There is an example here:

//configuring dependency on 'someLib' module
  compile(group: 'org.myorg', name: 'someLib', version:'1.0') {
    //explicitly adding the dependency artifact:
    artifact {
      //useful when some artifact properties unconventional
      name = 'someArtifact' //artifact name different than module name
      extension = 'someExt'
      type = 'someType'
      classifier = 'someClassifier'

and javadoc here:

Thanks for the pointers. ‘DependencyArtifact’ is a read-only interface, and above code is mutating private fields of the interface implementation. But since this made its way into the DSL reference, we’ll investigate. Raised GRADLE-3092.

Wow :slight_smile: Thanks.

But it is really nice to have some way to specify the exact name of artefact, if it differs from module name. E.g. in case of multiple artefacts per module.

Is there any workaround to achieve the desired functionality? To get the artefact with specific name.

You’d have to explain in more detail why you need this. Maven dependency resolution doesn’t support artifacts with arbitrary names.
