Using Gradle as an Absolute Beginner

Hi everyone,

In a computer graphics course I'm taking we have to use Gradle for an OpenGL assignment. We've never been introduced to any build tools before, so I have zero experience dealing with it. The professor packaged some example code in one directory and a "homework.java" file in another for us to modify as part of our assignment. He included simple instructions on how to compile the example code from the command line, but said we're on our own for figuring out how to work with Gradle in Eclipse. My question is: how does an absolute beginner (to build tools) get started with an existing Gradle project in Eclipse? I managed to import it as a Gradle project, but both the example code and "homework" code are included and it throws a ton of errors when I try to run it from Eclipse.

Please let me know if I need to clarify or provide any supporting items.
