how can I use tool-deps to download a jar to a specific location? I need to install a JVM agent that should not be on the classpath but I would like to manage it via deps.edn. I hcecked and it does not say how the dependencies are downloaded


Tools.deps uses Maven which only downloads jars to the local repo


You can specify a :mvn/local-repo key to affect that but seems like it would be cumbersome in combination with managing your regular class path


I guess you could create an alias with just that dep on it, use that to download, and then control what you’re doing with the result somehow
