O'Reilly - Gradle Fundamentals: From Basic Syntax to Plugins, Repositories, Dependencies, and Multi-Project Builds
Instructor: Ken Kousen
Kousen provides detailed Gradle examples, including the Spock testing framework, an overview of the Gradle builds for the Spring framework, and the default Gradle build for Android projects.
In this video course, you’ll explore:
Java project builds: specify repositories and dependencies, execute the build, and view the test output
Groovy project builds: learn additional tasks and dependencies for Groovy
Custom tasks: list available build tasks, define custom tasks, and insert them into the directed acyclic graph
Conditional task execution: understand how to control if and when to execute tasks with incremental builds
Multi-project builds: learn how Gradle defines subdirectories as separate projects
Miscellaneous features: generate a Gradle wrapper for clients who do not have it, and run the Gradle daemon to improve performance
Plugins: get a survey of Gradle plugin architecture and learn how to use the application, war, Gretty, and IDE plugins
