Adding a Provided JAR as a Dependency in a Gradle Project

Adding a JAR as a dependency is simple in Gradle. In your dependencies {}, add the following line:

compile files('file.jar')

Where file.jar is the path to the JAR from the root directory of the repository. For example, if I had Dependency.jar at ./libs/Dependency.jar, I would use compile files('libs/Dependency.jar').
