Building software has changed considerably over the last many years. Software building now involves libraries, repositories, dependencies, automatically generated source files, multiple modules, and multiple developers.
Brett Lindsley will present Cravin' Maven. Maven is a tool to automate build processes and deal with the complex issues by providing a standard "build cycle".
Norm Murrin will present Gradle Build Automation Evolved. Gradle provides the power and flexibility of Ant with the dependency management and conventions of Maven and is powered by a Groovy DSL.
These presentations provide overviews of Maven and Gradle, show how they work, and how they can solve your problems.
