I currently have a Gradle project which we use for QI purposes (running test case scenarios and such). For the same, the project is currently using the repository of the application code.
Now, we want to instead supply the team with a binary which they can use instead. I believe that wrapping the java classes and dyLibs as a .jar would be the way to go, and have been successful in creating a .jar file even tough we don’t have a main function (hence it’s not a runnable jar).
If I extract the jar into a folder, and set a path to the java files via defining
build.gradle, it works. But I want to just define the jar file and somehow have my project directly use the files defined inside as a source set.
I have tried defining the jar as a dependency using something like:
implementation files('ecp-sdk-native/ecp-sdk-native.jar') and/or
compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: 'mylib.jar'). Both of them didn’t work.
Any suggestions on how to proceed? Just FYI, I am not a java guy, so I don’t really get gradle / jars in depth.
