Does Gradle use maven under the hood?

(Mohamed Seifeddine) #1


I am wondering if Gradle uses Maven under the hood or if it only uses concepts of Maven and Ant?

The reason I am asking is that I am hoping for faster build time for our large project.

Thanks, Moe

In short it picks up some of the concepts of maven and ant but goes far beyond and is not a wrapper of these libraries. Especially with the incremental build feature and gradles dependency management gradle has much to offer to keep (or get) your builds fast.
