Installing Gradle

  1. Download Gradle from http://gradle.org/downloads

  2. Unzip the file into a directory without spaces (recommended).

  3. Create a GRADLE_HOME environment variable that points to this directory.

  4. Adjust your PATH environment variable to include $GRADLE_HOME/bin (%GRADLE_HOME%\bin on Windows).

  5. Test your setup by invoking gradle --version.

  1. Follow the instructions found at http://sdkman.io/ to install SDKMAN.

  2. You need a POSIX environment if running Windows. We recommend using Babun Shell (http://babun.github.io/)

  3. Once SDKMAN is installed invoke sdk install gradle 4.10.

  4. Test your setup by invoking gradle --version.


GDub is a wrapper script that facilitates invoking gradle tasks anywhere within a Gradle project. It’s smart enough to use the gradle wrapper if available or your global gradle command. This is an optional download.
