Preparing the Extension Template: Issue with Gradle (unresolved dependencies)
It seems to me i'm missing out on something here. I've downloaded the Extension template, but can't get it running properly. When i start gradle.build via Eclipse (or the ./gradlew initializeExtensionProject OR installExtension in a Command prompt), it fails.
This is the Error in Eclipse when i attempt importing the Project:
Synchronize Gradle projects with workspace failed due to an error in the referenced Gradle build. Could not fetch model of type 'ExtensionProject' using Gradle distribution 'https://services.gradle.org/distributions/gradle-2.3-bin.zip'.
A problem occured configuring root project 'extension'. Could not resolve all dependencies for configuration ':provided'. Could not find com.rapidminer.external:vldocking:1.2.2-SNAPSHOT.
Searched in the following locations: [...]
The PowerShell Error is pretty much the same. I've tried changing the Gradle distribution in the Wrapper, but then i get NullPointerExceptions, and i assume that this isn't the correct way to go anyways.
Changing Java Versions seems to have no effect overall either, but i haven't tried every possible combination, obviously.
What comes to mind, is that Gradle is at 4.7+ by now, and the extension template still uses 2.3. Is there a reason for that?
