Capsule vs Gradle: What are the differences?

What is Capsule? Dead-Simple Packaging and Deployment for JVM Apps. Packages any JVM application, no matter how complex, as a single, plain executable JAR. A capsule may directly contain all of the applicationโ€™s dependencies or simply declare some or all of them, to be downloaded when launched.

What is Gradle? 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.

Capsule and Gradle belong to "Java Build Tools" category of the tech stack.

Capsule and Gradle are both open source tools. Gradle with 9.23K GitHub stars and 2.7K forks on GitHub appears to be more popular than Capsule with 1.13K GitHub stars and 79 GitHub forks.

        What are some alternatives to Capsule and Gradle?
        Apache Maven
        Maven allows a project to build using its project object model (POM) and a set of plugins that are shared by all projects using Maven, providing a uniform build system. Once you familiarize yourself with how one Maven project builds you automatically know how all Maven projects build saving you immense amounts of time when trying to navigate many projects.
        CMake
        It is used to control the software compilation process using simple platform and compiler independent configuration files, and generate native makefiles and workspaces that can be used in the compiler environment of the user's choice.
        Sonatype Nexus
        It is an open source repository that supports many artifact formats, including Docker, Javaโ„ข and npm. With the Nexus tool integration, pipelines in your toolchain can publish and retrieve versioned apps and their dependencies
        Apache Ant
        Ant is a Java-based build tool. In theory, it is kind of like Make, without Make's wrinkles and with the full portability of pure Java code.
        Bazel
        Bazel is a build tool that builds code quickly and reliably. It is used to build the majority of Google's software, and thus it has been designed to handle build problems present in Google's development environment.

        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.

        The main build tool. Integrate and delegate build to NodeJS in the client application, and build the server, its used for development productivity and production optimisations and quality. Automate all machine scripts and build things from dev to continuous integration to production

        All 20+ micro-services that power Cirrus CI are living in a single mono repository. Gradle is using for testing and building Docker containers for all services.

        Gradle is used generally as our Android build tool, simplifying dependencies and general build process dramatically.
