The Java plugin emulates many of Maven's expected lifecycles as tasks in the dependency driven acyclic graph for the inputs and outputs of each task.  For projects that do not follow the Maven conventions, Gradle allows the directory structure to be configured.

Based on this which code snippet would support a project that contains the source files in src/java instead of src/main /?

    • get plugin: 'java' = ['src/java']

    • add plugin: ['java']
      java.dir = {'src/java'}

    • apply plugin: 'java' = ['src/java']

    • apply plugin: 'java' = ['src/java']


Which of the following alternatives correctly expresses concepts related to Gradle?

    • The key to using all the power of Gradle is to get to know your API in depth; we can find all classes and understand everything Gradle already natively gives us to work efficiently and quickly.

    • Due to its definition of dependencies between the project submodules, Gradle takes care of building all project components.

    • One of the major disadvantages of Gradle is that it does not have a local cache to make the dependencies available.

    • Early versions of Gradle were pure XML only. Only from version 3.0 that Gradle was developed in Groovy.


Which code snippet correctly appends Spring dependencies to a Gradle project?

    • add-dependency ['org.springframework:spring-core:4.1.0.RELEASE']
      add-dependency ['org.springframework:spring-context:4.1.0.RELEASE']

    • get: 'org.springframework:spring-core:4.1.0.RELEASE'
      get: 'org.springframework:spring-context:4.1.0.RELEASE'

    • compile 'org.springframework:spring-core:4.1.0.RELEASE'
      compile 'org.springframework:spring-context:4.1.0.RELEASE'

    • add( 'org.springframework:spring-core:4.1.0.RELEASE')
      add( 'org.springframework:spring-context:4.1.0.RELEASE')
