Gradle Status, January 2011

A short summary on status and information of recent achievements and changes of Gradle project. Plenty of new and good things!


Build Script Length - Maven 3, Polyglot Maven, Gradle and Ant

A short comparison of length of the build files of Maven 3, Polyglot Maven (Groovy version), Ant and Gradle. Please notice that this is NOT a full comparison of these build frameworks!


Will Hibernate Switch From Maven to Gradle?

Based on 'Gradle: why?' blog post from Steve Ebersole it seems like Hibernate is moving from Maven2 to Gradle!

Steve's post is really worth reading. He sums up his 2,5 year of Maven experiences and explains why he thinks of its time to move.

That would be just great for Gradle to "capture" such famous project! Go Gradle, go! :)

[Updated 2010-09-24 Hibernate's trunk still uses Maven. I can see two Gradle branches though:]


Gradle talk on Javarsovia 2010 - presentation, source code and comments

Here come slides, source code and some comments on my Gradle talk on Javarsovia 2010. Enjoy!


Builds Are Complex So Choose Your Tools Wisely

While preparing for Javarsovia 2010 Gradle speech I tried to list all things that are performed during builds. I remembered few last projects of mine and tried to categorize various actions that happen during their build. The result surprised me - seems like today's builds do a lot of very different stuff.

Gradle talk - Java Camp #3, 10 April 2010, Cracow, Poland

If you happen to be in Cracow (Poland) this Saturday (10 April 2010) and you know polish :) you might be interested in attending the Java Camp #3 conference. See for detailed agenda.

I'm happy to announce that I will give a talk on Gradle at 11 am. I have 1,5 hour to present Gradle and show how it compares to Ant/Maven. My plan is to show a lot of code to present how Gradle can solve real-life scenarios ...and bash Ant/Maven along the way ;).

Hope you will be there !


Gradle IDE integration - Eclipse plugin

A short post on Gradle-Eclipse integration.


Grails uses Gradle now

Only a short news today: Grails is using Gradle now ! Graeme Rocher (Grails Project Lead) informed that the old Ant build was replaced with Gradle.

Hurray ! One more step for Gradle to take over the world ! ;)

I'm pretty sure we will soon hear about other well-known projects migrating to Gradle.
