Gradle Build Automation – Part 5

Creating Gradle Build Scripts

  1. Gradle build consists of two important concepts (Projects and Tasks).
  2. Gradle build always consist of one or more projects.
    • A Gradle project can be WAR, JAR, ZIP file etc etc
    • A project has can be some component we want to build
    • A project can be something other than build i.e copying the files to remote server or deployment of application on server.
    • A project can have one or more tasks.
      • A task can be made up of one or more actions.
      • We can use doFirst and doLast methods to add actions to our tasks.
      • We can also use >> and << instead of doFirst and doLast.
