Also i propose to open here a thread about Gradle because in fact it's a deployment tool (which i of course using) written in groovy and use groove as a language to do things during deploy or for deployment.

I think this kind of thread will be helpful for lots of people.

May the force be with you!

I think that's a good idea. The Gradle documentation is located at and is very thorough.

Gradle is currently used to build pure Java projects like the Spring Framework, Hibernate, and more. In fact, at Google I/O they announced that in the future even Android projects will be built using Gradle, which is quite a statement given that Groovy doesn't even run on Android.
