Along the path of my quest to get more in contact with the more modern tools and instruments of building and maintaining your software, I am now reading on TestNG, to get myself more comfortable with the concept of leaving JUnit behind.
Gradle, is another build automation tool I’ve been introduced to by colleagues and friends. For those who are not familiar with it, Gradle (with words taken from the official site) is:
Gradle is build automation evolved. Gradle can automate the building, testing, publishing, deployment and more of software packages or other types of projects such as generated static websites, generated documentation or indeed anything else.
Right now, I’m reading the book “Building and Testing with Gradle” which is available online for free as a registered-access content. It is a good book, and I intend to finish it soon, so that I can get to actual programming and building projects using it.
Currently, the struggle for me is to not get confused by the Groovy syntax. However, I think I’m getting the hang of it.
I will probably be posting a short introduction soon, if I find such a thing necessary.
