I have used Ant and have found that it's dependencies evaluation is dependable. How is Gradle better?

Hi Tom,

The Gradle developers really want the dependency mechanism to work good. The implemented a dependency resolution:
http://www.gradle.org/docs/current/userguide/userguide_single.html#sec:dependency_resolution
and also a clever cache, so no unnecessary downloads are required:

I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
