Multi-project builds are very common in software projects. Gradle has great support for multi-project builds. We can use a hierarchical layout as the project structure, but we can easily customize this and use other layouts.
Configuring projects is easy and can be done in one place—at the root of the projects. We can also add project configurations at the project level itself. Not only can we define the dependencies between projects on a project-library level, but we can also do so via configuration or task dependencies. Gradle will resolve the correct way to build the complete project so that we don't have to worry too much about that.
As Gradle knows the projects that will be involved before a task is executed, we can do partial multi-project builds. Gradle will automatically build project dependencies, which are necessary for our current project, and we can use a single task to build the projects that depend on our current project.
