android – Gradle publish to the specific repo of the Artifactory

Questions:

I am trying to setup the artifacts (APK/aar files) build process with gradle similar to how I am used to with maven.

mvn release:prepare (Adjusts version, checks into SVN, creates the tag) 
mvn release:perform -Dgoals=deploy (Pushes the artifact to http://artifactory.XXX.local/artifactory/libs-releases-local/)

I want to be able to run the gradle commands and achieve similar results. I am using https://github.com/researchgate/gradle-release plugin for the release management (which works fine so I am good with release). But when I run the command gradlew artifactoryPublish the artifact is deployed at some other location (as if it’s not respecting the repoKey in the gradle file)

D:\my-lib-android-0.0.2>gradlew artifactoryPublish … … [buildinfo] Not using buildInfo properties file for this build.
:artifactoryPublish Deploying build descriptor to:
http://artifactory.XXX.local/artifactory/api/build Build successfully
deployed. Browse it in Artifactory under
http://artifactory.XXX.local/artifactory/webapp/builds/my-lib-android-0.0.2/1449880830949>

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Total time: 9.692 secs

So my question is how can I fix my setup so that the artifact is pushed to a URL similar to this:

http://artifactory.XXX.local/artifactory/libs-releases-local/com/example/my-lib-android/0.0.2/my-lib-android-0.0.2.aar

build.gradle File:

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.

        classpath 'net.researchgate:gradle-release:2.3.4'
        // NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
        // in the individual module build.gradle files
    }
}
plugins {
    id 'net.researchgate.release' version '2.3.4'

How to&Answers:

Using android-maven plugin:

buildscript {
    repositories {
        jcenter()
    }
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:0.9.2'
        classpath 'com.github.dcendents:android-maven-plugin:1.0'
        classpath 'org.jfrog.buildinfo:build-info-extractor-gradle:3.2.0'
    }
}

apply plugin: 'android-library'
apply plugin: 'com.jfrog.artifactory-upload'
apply plugin: 'android-maven'


configurations {
  published
}

task sourceJar(type: Jar) {
    from android.sourceSets.main.java
    classifier "sources"
}

artifactoryPublish {
    dependsOn sourceJar
}

artifacts {
    published sourceJar
}

artifactory {
    contextUrl = "${artifactory_contextUrl}"
    publish {
        repository {
            repoKey = "libs-releases-local"
            username = "${artifactory_user}"
            password = "${artifactory_password}"
        }
        defaults {
            publishConfigs('archives', 'published')
            publishPom = true //Publish generated POM files to Artifactory (true by default)
            publishIvy = false //Publish generated Ivy descriptor files to Artifactory (true by default)
        }
    }
}

Answer:

I usually do it with the mavenDeployer-plugin like this.
Don’t know if it matches your case, but I’ll just leave it here.

apply plugin: 'maven'
uploadArchives {
    repositories {
        mavenDeployer {
            repository(url: 'http://arandom.nexus.com:8081/nexus/content/repositories/releases') {
                authentication(userName: NEXUS_USERNAME, password: NEXUS_PASSWORD);
            }
            snapshotRepository(url: 'http://arandom.nexus.com:8081/nexus/content/repositories/snapshots') {
                authentication(userName: NEXUS_USERNAME, password: NEXUS_PASSWORD);
            }
            pom.groupId = "groupId"
            pom.artifactId = "artifactId"
            pom.version = "${versionMajor}.${versionMinor}.${versionPatch}"
        }
    }
}
