Learn how to implement Gradle, the Groovy-based build automation system that can help you build and test software projects, from small to large. In this video course, Java consultant Ken Kousen demonstrates Groovy's relationship to Java, and takes a close look at POGOs—plain old Groovy objects—and how they define properties, access modifiers, and generate methods.
