Bamboo vs Gradle: What are the differences?

Developers describe Bamboo as "Tie automated builds, tests, and releases together in a single workflow". Focus on coding and count on Bamboo as your CI and build server! Create multi-stage build plans, set up triggers to start builds upon commits, and assign agents to your critical builds and deployments. On the other hand, Gradle is detailed as "A powerful build system for the JVM". Gradle is a build tool with a focus on build automation and support for multi-language development. If you are building, testing, publishing, and deploying software on any platform, Gradle offers a flexible model that can support the entire development lifecycle from compiling and packaging code to publishing web sites.

Bamboo can be classified as a tool in the "Continuous Integration" category, while Gradle is grouped under "Java Build Tools".

"Integrates with other Atlassian tools" is the top reason why over 7 developers like Bamboo, while over 106 developers mention "Flexibility" as the leading cause for choosing Gradle.

Gradle is an open source tool with 9.23K GitHub stars and 2.7K GitHub forks. Here's a link to Gradle's open source repository on GitHub.

According to the StackShare community, Gradle has a broader approval, being mentioned in 465 company stacks & 360 developers stacks; compared to Bamboo, which is listed in 62 company stacks and 24 developer stacks.

What are some alternatives to Bamboo and Gradle?
Jenkins
In a nutshell Jenkins CI is the leading open-source continuous integration server. Built with Java, it provides over 300 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project.
Travis CI
Free for open source projects, our CI environment provides multiple runtimes (e.g. Node.js or PHP versions), data stores and so on. Because of this, hosting your project on travis-ci.com means you can effortlessly test your library or applications against multiple runtimes and data stores without even having all of them installed locally.
CircleCI
Continuous integration and delivery platform helps software teams rapidly release code with confidence by automating the build, test, and deploy process. Offers a modern software development platform that lets teams ramp.
Codeship
Codeship runs your automated tests and configured deployment when you push to your repository. It takes care of managing and scaling the infrastructure so that you are able to test and release more frequently and get faster feedback for building the product your users need.
GitLab CI
GitLab offers a continuous integration service. If you add a .gitlab-ci.yml file to the root directory of your repository, and configure your GitLab project to use a Runner, then each merge request or push triggers your CI pipeline.

Apache Maven
Apache Maven

We use Apache Maven because it is a standard. Gradle is very good alternative, but Gradle doesn't provide any advantage for our project. Gradle is slower (without running daemon), need more resources and a learning curve is quite big. Our project can not use a great flexibility of Gradle. On the other hand, Maven is well-know tool integrated in many IDEs, Dockers and so on.

maven 과 함께 자바의 유명한 빌드 툴중 하나인데 솔직히 그냥 테스크 러너라는 생각이 든다. ssh 플러그인을 쓰면 간단한 배포는 쉽게 자동화 할 수 있다. ssh 플러그인의 경우 서버 시작 종료 쉘이 잘 안되는 경우가 있는 것 같다.
