    The first half was very interesting Some stuff was obsolete, but it was still really good read I wish the book would be updated with latest version of Gradle Other half about automation, deployment, provisioning was not really interesting It describes one way to build and deploy software which is probably obsolete now.


  3. Phúc Võ Phúc Võ says:

    The first chapter may look tedious, but if you worked with Ant and Maven before, and know their philosophy, then it really worth it The next chapter guides you to think about treating the build script as an object, because it is Groovy, and strive for declaration over iteration Then for the rest, it is bit obsolete comparing to now Because it was written 7 years ago P


  4. Andy Andy says:

    This is a very thorough book about Gradle It describes various scenarios where one could use a build tool like Gradle It described how Gradle, specifically, can be used to solve those problem After reading this you should be able to do just about whatever you need to do with Gradle The bonus is that there are many other useful development tools discussed along the way that can aid in other development areas especially Java related tools.


  5. Steve Steve says:

    An OK book that has lots of useful information But it wasn t as concise as I d have liked and it tried too hard to drive home the point that Gradle is much better than ant and maven, rather than arguing that it sflexible or that it s the tool to use when your problem exceeds the scope of what maven can do Note my comments are based on a Aug 2013 MEAP version, so the book may have improved since


  6. Brett Brett says:

    I found it bizarre that the explanation of Gradle syntax how it relates to groovy was buried in a brief appendix, when it is what you need to understand in order to confidently go beyond the samples provided Meanwhile the main text is full of tedious explanations and tangential discussions that only barely relate to understanding Gradle.

    ok


  8. Luboš Luboš says:

    I am not sure for whom the book is It describes the concept of repositories for beginners on one hand and advanced stuff like puppet on the other hand.


  9. Yamir Encarnacion Yamir Encarnacion says:

    I was going to rank this book 3 stars until I read Chapter 11 on Building Polyglot Projects I found Chapter 11 very useful.

    This is a very thorough book and a good reference with lots of examples.
