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
