I experimented with gradle as I found some good sample projects that only used it. So I tried to create my own gradle.

It was pretty straight forward, adding my own repository was very simple:

    buildscript {
        repositories {
            maven { url "" }

worked great, perfect integration with a maven repository.

Next, I tried dependencies:


Not so much luck. for some reason it looks at the wrong version.

Could not find
  Searched in the following locations:

In the above case, -16.jar doesn't exist. I think 16 is in the first metadata xml file, but not anywhere else.

So this is a dealbreaker. No snapshot dependencies and I can't compile.
