Gradle Quick Start for Debian Jessie 8 Linux
You are Welcome! The Tutorial shows you Step-by-Step How to Install and Getting-Started with Gradle Enterprise Automation Tools on Debian Jessie 8 GNU/Linux Desktop/Server.
Gradle is the next evolutionary step in JVM-based Build Tools. It draws on lessons learned from established tools like Ant and Maven and takes their best ideas to the next level.
Following a build-by-convention approach, Gradle allows for declaratively modeling your problem domain using a powerful and expressive domain-specific language (DSL) implemented in Groovy instead of XML.
Gradle Evolved Automation Features:
- Strong yet flexible conventions
- Enterprise level control capabilities
- Manageable and understandable builds
