Overall Satisfaction with Gradle

Gradle is the only build tool we use. The Software team uses it to build all of our Java applications. Before, we were using Ant build scripts, but have since completely migrated to Gradle. Gradle, along with Google's Cloud Build, allows us to quickly build our applications in the cloud using automated builds.
  • Quick build time for quick deployments!
  • Integration with IDEs provides ease of use!
  • The speed of builds can always be improved.
  • Needs work for more complex builds like web applications.
  • Faster build times for quicker deployments!
Gradle performs better than both Ant and Maven. Dependency handling is very easy to use.
Gradle seems to be picking up steam, and because of that, there are many courses and discussions about it online. I was able to quickly learn because of its online presence.
