It's great to introduce Gradle, a groundbreaking JVM-based build tool.
It provides you with:
A flexible build tool that, like ant, is common
A switchable, convention-based framework like maven that is superior to configuration
Powerful multi-engineering build support
Strong dependency management (apacheIvy-based)
Full support for existing maven and ivy repositories
Pass-through dependency management is supported without the need for remote warehouses .xml or ivy profiles
ant-style tasks and builds are the first citizens of gradle
Based on groovy, its build script is written using groovy dsl
Have a wide range of domain models to support your build
In the second chapter overview, you'll see a detailed introduction and guidance about Gradle
