Why doesn't twitter4j library build from Gradle?

This library is found in the twitter docs. http://twitter4j.org/en/index.html

I added it to the dependencies: compile 'org.twitter4j:twitter4j-core:4.0'

I ran the dependencies: ./gradlew dependencies

However, that build failed. Though, CSV and jsoup passed.

I was able to successfully add the jar file to my class path and that works. Considering this library says that it has no other dependencies, that seems to be Okay. Still, I'm curious as to why it didn't build in Gradle.


I have no problem adding it to my project ... this is what I have

dependencies { compile group: 'org.apache.commons', name: 'commons-csv', version: '1.4'

compile group: 'org.jsoup', name: 'jsoup', version: '1.9.2'

compile group: 'org.twitter4j', name: 'twitter4j-core', version: '4.0.4'

testCompile group: 'junit', name: 'junit', version: '4.11'
