- Gradle's methods to manipulate files is very flexible. It minimizes the amount of code one has to write to copy, move, or expand zip or tar files.
- Gradle uses Groovy, which is a Java like language. This allows for most computer engineers to come up to speed fairly quickly, for writing or maintaining gradle code.
- Gradle also supports DSL (Domain Specific Language), which is based on Groovy. The DSL language allows engineers to automate build jobs that otherwise could be very cumbersome to maintain or modify.
- The Gradle documentation is available online, and it is quite comprehensive. However, more real life examples could be useful.
I have participated in a variety of build environments, from basic shell scripts, to ant, and to maven. All of these tools have a place, sometimes perhaps in legacy code. But moving forward, I would never go back to other more primitive tools (never say never...). The more I learn and use Gradle, the more of an advocate I become.
