About the Technology

Gradle is a general-purpose build automation tool. It extends the usage patterns established by its forerunners Ant and Maven and allows builds that are expressive, maintainable, and easy to understand. Using a flexible Groovy-based DSL, Gradle provides declarative and extendable language elements that let you model your project’s needs the way you want.
