What is build.gradle file?


You run a Gradle build using the gradle command. The gradle command looks for a file called build.gradle in the current directory. You can call this build.gradle file a build script, although strictly speaking it is a build configuration script. The build script defines a project and its tasks.

To try this out, create the following build script named build.gradle.

task hello {
        doLast {
                println 'Hello Java2Novice...'
        }
}

Move to the folder where build.gradle file placed and run command "gradle hello"

java2novice$ gradle hello
:hello
Hello Java2Novice...

BUILD SUCCESSFUL

Total time: 3.348 secs

This build script defines a single task, called hello, and adds an action to it. When you run gradle hello, Gradle executes the hello task, which in turn executes the action you've provided.

Can interface be final?
No. We can not instantiate interfaces, so in order to make interfaces useful we must create subclasses. The final keyword makes a class unable to be extended.
