You could use the Google Eclipse plugin, command line and even Maven to handle all things from build, local dev server and finally deployment to the live instance. You may ask why use Gradle, when you may already have got used to one of the other mechanisms to deal with your App Engine Developer flow (Eclipse plugin, Maven or Command Line).
I think it is important to understand Gradle for the simple reason that over the last few months, we have seen that App Engine modules can be added to your Android applications inside of Android Studio.
To summarize, this episode will be about a basic App Engine application that we shall build, run locally and deploy to the Cloud via Gradle App Engine plugin and its related tasks. This part assumes that you have a Gradle installation on your machine and the basic environment is setup. Additionally, you know the basics of using the Java plugin in Gradle, which we covered in Part 2 and building multiple and interdependent Java projects that we covered in Part 3.
You are also familiar with basic Java Web Application projects, some of that we covered in Part 4.
You'll find plenty of introductory tutorials for getting started with Maven, including some listed in this article's Related topics section.
The five tips here are intended to help you with what comes next: the programming scenarios that arise when using Maven to manage the life cycle of your applications. The fact is, most developers scratch the surface of the Java platform, learning just enough to get the job done.
As a life-cycle management tool, Maven operates against phases rather than Ant-style build "tasks." Maven handles all phases of the project life cycle, including validation, code generation, compilation, testing, packaging, integration testing, verification, installation, deployment, and project site creation and deployment.
This post will be discussing the App Engine Standard Environment.
