Subject Re: [DECISION] Unit Testing and Mocking Frameworks

Hey there,

But if Maven is used for dependency management then we don't need to
include any third party stuff in our repositories.
You just reference the appropriate remote repositories and the build system
will pull in the necessary files.
That's the nice option of using GradleFX, it uses the convenience of the
Maven dependency system combined with
a sane build syntax.
Or am I missing a point somewhere?
