Gradle for Building Java Applications

Building software is a very important part of software development cycle. In the C/C++ age, we used make and continue to use it today. When it came to Java age, two important build tools emerged: Ant and Maven. The former is very similar to make, but instead of script it uses XML. Both make and Ant describe HOW to build software in steps. The Maven takes a quite different approach – it describes WHAT the built software is using XML, and leaves the how to the Maven and its plugins.
