Overall Satisfaction with Gradle

We are using Gradle as a build tool. We are using it across all the departments in our organization. We are using Gradle to build all our Java applications. We were using Maven before but seeing the advantages of using Gradle we recently migrated all our projects from Maven to Gradle.
  • We use it as a build tool.
  • We build Java applications using this tool.
  • We also use Gradle to test our apps.
  • It becomes a bit tricky when we use Gradle demon.
  • It's a very good investment.
  • It helped us to simplify our build process.
We haven't taken any support package, but it has very good support from the community especially from Stackoverflow. We basically go to the Stackoverflow for most of the issues. The documentation from the Gradle's website is really good. I don't even think we need to buy a support package for Gradle.

Do you think Gradle delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Gradle's feature set?

Yes

Did Gradle live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Gradle go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Gradle again?

Yes

We can use Gradle in many ways, we can build our apps, test apps, and also for dependency management. Gradle manages cache in a very good way. We just need to add a plugin to build and test any Java projects. I don't recommend using Gradle for app deployments, data migrations, etc.
