  • It allows us to share configurations between machines and developers
  • It makes builds reproducible
  • It allows us to tweak how our server gets bundled and deployed
  • Still under development, not as mature as Maven
  • Build files aren't as easy to follow because they are so loose
  • The community isn't as large as Maven

  • 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.

  • It's highly customizable and easy to understand
  • It's quite simple to write an additional plugin if that's necessary
  • Provides support for Groovy and the latest versions also support Kotlin
  • The gradle wrapper is awesome because it allows to use Gradle without installing it
  • I'd like to see a way to specify how to run only certain tests in parallel, I tried this feature and for tests that involve interaction with SQL Databases sometimes I can't because of deadlocks.
  • Not sure if there is something else, gradle has been working really good for us and they are adding improvements all the time which is awesome. I used to think the performance is a deal but the latest versions are addressing this issue very well
