What is Gradle?
Gradle is an open source build automation system. Gradle can automate the building, testing, publishing, deployment and more of software packages or other types of projects such as generated static websites, generated documentation or indeed anything else.
Gradle combines the power and flexibility of Ant with the dependency management and conventions of Maven into a more effective way to build. Powered by Build Programming Language, Gradle is concise yet expressive.
