The book will start with the fundamentals of Gradle and introduce you to the tools that will be used in further chapters. You will learn to create and work with Gradle scripts and then see how to use Gradle to build your Java Projects. While building Java application, you will find out about other important topics such as dependency management, publishing artifacts, and integrating the application with other JVM languages such as Scala and Groovy. By the end of this book, you will be able to use Gradle in your daily development. Writing tasks, applying plugins, and creating build logic will be your second nature.

Chapter 11. Gradle in the Enterprise

It is good practice to have a continuous integration tool in a software project. With a continuous integration tool, we can automatically build our software in a controlled environment. In this chapter, we are going to take a look at the support for Gradle in several continuous integration tools.

First, we are going to create a sample Java project and use Git as a version control repository. Then, we are going to see how continuous integration servers, such as Jenkins, JetBrains TeamCity, and Atlassian Bamboo, support Gradle.

We will cover the following topics in this chapter:

  • Creating a sample Java project

  • Using Gradle with Jenkins

  • Running Gradle tasks with JetBrains TeamCity

  • Learning how to set up Atlassian Bamboo for Gradle
