Not so long ago people used Eclipse for android development. Eclipse alongside the ADT(Android Developer Tools) used the Ant build system to build our android apps into executable APKs.

Then Google introduced Android Studio alongside a new modular build system that replaced the old Ant scripts that were generated by the older versions of the SDK.

Gradle alongside Android Studio is very powerful and flexible, allowing you to write your gradle scripts in groovy, a dynamic JVM based programming language.

Gradle has similarities to Ivy and Maven. Besides the flexibility of Ant, gradle also comes with the dependency management from Maven.

This is powerful since rather than writing build-scripts in complex XML-files, we can wite our build scripts in a Groovy DSL (Domain-Specific Language). Thus you are able to more clearly specify your build configuration.
