debug settings for java project?


I have inherited a java gradle project and I am trying to get my settings right.

The project can be build with gradle in the windows CLI without problem, however I am not able to get the project to build, run or debug directly in intellij.
The gradle build actually compiles 2 seperate java projects. When trying to debug, run or build in intellij the main project throws errors about the second java project that supposedly does not exist ("java: package does not exist").
In the debug/run settings I have set the main class and I have set "Before launch, run gradle task" which is supposed to build both projects (again this works correctly in gradle command line).
Clearly I am doing something wrong.
Anyone knows what is going wrong?

Kind regards,

Hard to say without actually knowing the project structure (directories and how the are configured in IDEA).

Do you have the sources of both projects configured in IDEA?
Else I guess you would have to add the artifacts of the second project as a library.

(I am no gradle expert and know even less about IDEA's gradle support, so maybe I miss some angle.)

You either need to import both projects in IDEA or import the root Gradle multiproject instead that defines the dependencies between these two projects.
