Gradle is the next step in JVM-based build tools. It draws on lessons learned from established build tools like Ant and Maven, incorporating and improving upon their best ideas, like full flexibility and convention over configuration. In Gradle, problem domains are declaratively modeled using a powerful Groovy DSL instead of cumbersome XML. As a result, builds are far more expressive, extensible, and testable.

Gradle in Action is a comprehensive guide to end-to-end project automation with Gradle. Starting with the basics, this practical, easy-to-read book discusses how to build a full-fledged, real-world project. Along the way, it touches on advanced topics like testing, continuous integration, and monitoring code quality. It also covers tasks like setting up target environments and deploying software.
