It's one thing to convince li'l ol' me that one tool is better than all of its competitors, but it's a much bigger thing to convince the decision-makers here at Lex Luthor Enterprises. Chad Emrick's recent book on Clojure addresses this specific topic of selling a technology into the organization. Does your book offer any strategies in this regard?

Thanks,
Rick

Hi Rick,

no sorry, the book doesn't address this issue. The book is for developers like us that want to know Gradle's features and possibilities.

Gradle has some great "Enterprise" selling points though:

- Gradle wrapper: http://java.dzone.com/articles/use-gradle-wrapper-and-stop
- Standarize builds in the Enterprise: http://www.gradleware.com/registered-access?content=screencasts%2Fstandardizing-and-administering%2F

Thank you for your answer. I don't mean to suggest that your book NEEDS such a treatment. I just wondered if it might.

My main purpose for this reply is to correct my misspelling of Chad's name, actually. The author of _Clojure Programming_ is Chad Emerick, with Brian Carper and Christophe Grand.

Sorry for the noise.
Rick
