The purpose of Gradle: Gradle for Java Developers

Every framework has a purpose and Gradle is no exception. Gradle was created to make the building of deployment files simple. To achieve that goal, Gradle was made to be configurable with an easy-to-learn scripting language called Groovy, and withouth complex XML files that other tools use. Gradle can be run using simple command line scripts which allow automated builds to be set up and performed simply. Gradle also allows customization using Groovy to accommodate complex build requirements.
