Adobe CQ build through Gradle


(dosttum) #1

Is it possible to build Adobe CQ build with Gradle - Maven has one plugin which was offically announced in Adobe site to build CQ from Maven : Do we have something for Gradle to deal with Adobe CQ stuff?

There’s no official tooling available.

I know of at least two companies who are using Gradle to build for CQ. They built their own custom support based on the Gradle OSGi plugin. Unfortunately I can’t share their names due to NDA concerns.

Hi Veer,

This is not a simple thing. If you want to go down this route you will need pretty strong Gradle and OSGi skills.

If you aren’t willing to make a pretty serious time and development investment here, Gradle might not be the best choice for working with Adobe CQ.

Hi Veer,

The only way you can integrate with Maven is to call it as a process. There’s no tight integration for driving Maven builds via Gradle.
