Gradle is the next step in JVM-based build tools. It draws on lessons learned from established tools like Ant and Maven, incorporating and improving upon ideas like full flexibility and convention over configuration. In Gradle you declaratively model your problem domain using a powerful Groovy DSL instead of cumbersome XML, resulting in expressive, extensible, and testable builds.

Gradle in Action is a comprehensive guide to end-to-end project automation with Gradle. Starting with the basics, this practical, easy-to-read book discusses how to build a full-fledged, real-world project. Along the way, it touches on advanced topics like testing, continuous integration, and monitoring code quality. You’ll also explore tasks like setting up your target environment and deploying your software.
