Using a URL as a dependency

I have a WSDL located at a URL that I would like to treat as a dependency. Basically I want to use Gradle’s dependency management system to manage determining whether new stub classes need to be generated.

I suspect that I could figure out how to do this through Ivy or a similar framework, but I was hoping that someone here could save me the time. I spent an hour or so on this yesterday but I think I’d need to invest more time that I have before finding a satisfactory solution.


It’s something we would like to (and eventually will) support, but you can’t do it today.
