Inter MPP test source / compilation dependency


I try to migrate my project to MPP. Now i run into the situation where i need a project dependency to another MPP’s jvm test sourceset / compilation. I tried with a custom configuration / artifact like

configurations {

task testJar(type: Jar) {
    classifier "test"
    from kotlin.targets.jvm.compilations.test.output.allOutputs

artifacts {
    testArtifacts testJar

// And in the dependent project
implementation project(':application:base').testArtifacts

And directly

implementation project(':application:base').kotlin.targets.jvm.compilations.test.output.allOutputs

None works reliably. Is there a way for such a dependency?

It looks like an issue with the project configuration order. I have a further MPP (and a couple more in the future) which depends on “:application:base”'s test as well. And on this project it works as expected.

Finally, my solution is to use evaluationDependsOn for MMP projects they have test dependencies to other MMP’s. The difficult thing here is that this configurations / source sets / outputs are added by the MPP plugin. So all dependency projects have to be evaluated to reference some resources of them.

Maybe this help others they run into a similar situation.
