Actually I heard about Gradle long time ago and I know Android application use it as a building system. So I think it's quite interesting to study it. how can we use it for building a normal Java application.
First of all , You have to install it (off course). you can download it directly from their website.

It's shame to say that this website was build with very old school java style ... Previously , every libraries in this website have to be a jar file and put it together in the single directory. After that I have to do some of setting in Eclipse for using it.
Actually , it's a heritage from the early version of Google AppEngine on Java. At that time , it does not support Maven yet. I have another project that already build with maven but I don't have time to go back and fix it in this web (a little bit busy guy). But for now , it's very difficult (and pain) for me to introduce a new library or upgrade a version in this project. So I have to fix it 😄 . Google AppEngine in maven plugin is handy for a java developer like me.
But one more thing, A new version of java is coming (words of my house). Currently , Google AppEngine only supports Java 7. It would be a great success , if we can use a new version of Java in the future (I wish). 😄

I just realized that I had a project when I was a student in the university. I thought it was created for 3 years ago. The project named TAIS (Thailand Amphibian Information System). I created this project because I wanted to created a system that can search relation between the animal by using information from Biological Classification (Taxonomy) with W3C semantic technology.
This system used Java with Google AppEngine. I thought Google AppEngine was very good for scaling but it had a lot of limitation. This made this work more difficult than I expected. I had to used a lot of service from Google AppEngine to archive my goal such as Memcache , Task Queues , Backend , ETC ...
