How To Add Local .jar File Dependency To Build.gradle File?

To add a local .jar file dependency to build.gradle file in a Java project, you can follow these steps:

  1. Place the .jar file in a directory within your project, for example, libs directory.

  2. Open the build.gradle file of your project.

  3. Inside the dependencies block, add the following line of code:

    implementation files('libs/your-jar-filename.jar')
    

    Replace your-jar-filename.jar with the actual name of your .jar file.

  4. Save the build.gradle file.

  5. Sync the Gradle project by clicking on the "Sync Now" link, or by running the Gradle sync command.

After syncing, Gradle will automatically detect the added dependency and include the .jar file in the project’s classpath. You can now use the classes and resources from the .jar file in your Java project.
