The artifacts and their extensions are defined by the module you are
depending on. Since your dependency doesn't specify any configuration, you
are getting all JAR artifacts. The reason you are getting JAR artifacts and
not some other type is because "jar" is the default.

Reading the docs for the <dependency> tag should help explain some of this a
little better (hopefully).
