testRuntime Dependency Missing

I’m getting errors in my unit tests because the javax.servlet.* classes can’t be found. For example, “java.lang.ClassNotFoundException: javax.servlet.ServletOutputStream” as well as many others.

I specifically added the following to the build.gradle file:

testRuntime (

Yet when I run “gradle dependencies”, the dependency graph does not show servlet-api under the testRuntime dependencies.

I’m at a complete loss as to what could be causing this and where to even start investigating. Gradle version info:

$ gradle --version ------------------------------------------------------------ Gradle 1.10 ------------------------------------------------------------

Try running the build with --debug and look for anything related to servlet-api
