COJUG - Migrating from Maven To Gradle...

  • February 11, 2014 · 11:30 AM

Abstract

Are you using Maven for your project builds because it was the least evil of the tools you could find?  Our team was too... until we started using Gradle.  Gradle claims to be "Build automation evolved"  Is that true?  If so, what makes it true?  We will discuss the trials and travails of migrating a complex multi-module project from Maven to Gradle.  What compelled us to make the change, and what benefits have we realized since the change was made?  We will also discuss the rough edges we encountered during both our migration and our day to day use.
