Subject Re: Discussion: migrating from Ant to Gradle
Date Thu, 21 Aug 2014 13:48:46 GMT
As a "pro" it should stated that migrating to gradle would - wait for it -
help in the migration to and/or from moqui.org, as it is one its many
advanced built-in tools. I appreciate the groovy-everywhere consistency of
moqui and believe that it would be a good direction for OFBiz to head.
