  • How to create a classpath

For Java, the classpath argument is simply a list of paths joined with an OS-specific path separator:

Paths
cp = paths.join(File::PATH_SEPARATOR)

This assumes paths points to files and/or directories, but what if you have a list of artifact specifications? You can turn those into file names in two steps. First, use artifacts to return a list of file tasks that point to the local repository:

artifacts
tasks = Buildr.artifacts(specs)

Next, map that list of tasks into list of file names (essentially calling name on each task):

Tasks
paths = tasks.map(&:name)

This works as long as the artifacts are already in your local repository, otherwise they can't be found, but you can ask Buildr to download them by calling invoke on each of these tasks:

invoke artifacts
tasks = Buildr.artifacts(specs).each(&:invoke)

So let's roll this all into a single line:

One Liner
cp = Buildr.artifacts(specs).each(&:invoke).map(&:name).join(File::PATH_SEPARATOR)
