We will download, install and configure gradle, and then execute a simple program.
Gradle 1.x requires a Java JDK 5 or higher to be installed and the location needs to be added to an environment variable JAVA_HOME.
Gradle 2.x requires a Java JDK 6 or higher to be installed and the location needs to be added to an environment variable JAVA_HOME.

Gradle is an open source build automation tool, and is licensed under the ASL. Gradle is designed for large multi-project builds. Gradle builds upon the concepts of Ant and Maven, and introduced a Groovy-based domain-specific language (DSL) instead of traditional XML form for configurations. We quickly looked into the other popular build tools previously.

Ruby is a dynamic, reflective, general-purpose object-oriented programming language that combines syntax inspired by Perl with Smalltalk-like features. It was also influenced by Eiffel and Lisp. Ruby was first designed and developed in the mid-1990s by Yukihiro "Matz" Matsumoto in Japan. Ruby supports multiple programming paradigms, including functional, object oriented and imperative. It also has a dynamic type system and automatic memory management; it is therefore similar in varying respects to Smalltalk, Python, Perl, Lisp etc.
