Trying to include a local lib, but 'packages do not exist'

(paulg002) #1

Does this gradle syntax (flatdir) look ok for lib? It doesn’t seem to see my jars in my local lib directory, and errors out. I have confirmed the projectDir variable resolves correct in respect to holding the lib dir. Also confirmed the repositories section is executed. My command is ‘gradlew build’. Here is build.gradle: apply plugin: ‘java’ apply from: “${buildToolsRoot}/company.gradle”

group=“com. company.biit” version=“1-${buildNumber}”

sourceCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_6 targetCompatibility = JavaVersion.VERSION_1_6

def librepo = “${projectDir}\lib” repositories {

flatDir {

dirs librepo


println(“lib is here: ${projectDir}\lib”) }

Here is one error:

:compileJavaC:\mercurialRepository\automation\CompanyTestAutomation\src\main\java\com\company\automation\tests\api\ package does not exist import;

answering myself:

dependencies { compile fileTree(dir: ‘lib’) }
