Gradle for Android

Automate the build process for your Android projects with Gradle

Gradle is an open source build automation system that introduces a Groovy-based domain-specific language (DSL) to configure projects. Using Gradle makes it easy for Android developers to manage dependencies and set up the entire build process.

This book begins by taking you through the basics of Gradle and how it works with Android Studio. Furthermore, you will learn how to add local and remote dependencies to your project. You will work with build variants, such as debug and release, paid and free, and even combinations of these things. The book will also help you set up unit and integration testing with different libraries and will show how Gradle and Android Studio can make running tests easier. Finally, you will be shown a number of tips and tricks on the advanced customization of your application’s build process. By the end of this book, you will be able to customize the entire build process, and create your own tasks and plugins for your Gradle builds.

Mastering Gradle

Master the technique of developing, migrating, and building automation using Gradle

With Gradle, you can efficiently build automation framework along with some flexible alternatives to customized build logic. This book starts with sound basics about build automation and how Gradle fits into this automation. It then moves on to give you a good exposure on Groovy—a scripting language used to write Gradle—and helps you understand a key elements of Groovy programming language. In the following chapters, you will deal with task management and learn how to integrate Ant tasks into build scripts. Furthermore, you will learn dependency management, plugin management, and its configuration techniques in Gradle. You will also get hands-on with building and testing projects using Gradle. You will then begin to cover diverse topics, such as Continuous Integration with Jenkins and TeamCity, Migration strategies, and Deployment, which enables you to learn concepts useful for Agile software development. Finally, you will also learn how to create a simple mobile application using Android and explore how Gradle can help you to build and test the application.

Gradle Dependency Management

안드로이드를 위한 Gradle

안드로이드 스튜디오를 이용한 빌드 자동화

이 책은 안드로이드 개발 경험이 있는 개발자 중에서 안드로이드 스튜디오와 Gradle의 기본적인 내용을 빠르게 학습하고자 하는 독자를 대상으로 합니다. 간단한 안드로이드 앱을 만들어본 경험이 있다면 누구든 이 책을 이해하는 데 문제가 없습니다. 책에 있는 예제는 Hello World와 간단한 버튼이 있는 UI 정도로 매우 간단합니다.

그동안 Gradle에 관한 책은 몇 권 있었지만, 안드로이드 개발자가 바로 따라 해보기는 어려웠습니다. 그래서 저자가 실무에서 겪은 내용을 알기 쉽게 풀어냈습니다. Gradle의 백미는 멀티 프로젝트의 활용입니다. 현재 이클립스로 진행 중인 개발 프로젝트가 있다면 단지 Gradle로 동일하게 변환하는 데 만족하지 말고 독립적인 기능을 별도 모듈로 구성하여 멀티 프로젝트로 구성해 보기를 추천합니다. Gradle 내부를 이해하는 데 큰 도움이 됩니다.

이 책은 안드로이드 스튜디오 버전 2.0을 기반으로 하고 있습니다.
