Why creating a Gradle project downloading gradle.zip from Internet?

I have installed Gradle plugin on my STS and downloaded gradle.zip and configured to use gradle.zip from my local filesystem in Gradle Preferences page. But when I create a Gradle project it is still trying to download gradle.zip from Internet. Is it a bug?

In my corporate environment URLs like .zip and .rar are blocked, so when it tries to download it got failed. Is there any way to get around it?

Hi Siva,

You might have better luck asking on the STS forums.

The developers of the Gradle support answer questions there.
