Build orchestration and automation has always been a tricky problem, especially once we start crossing application boundaries. Several tools in he Java ecosystem, such as ant and maven, have taken a stab at this problem.

A relatively new entrant to this space is Gradle. Built using Groovy it offers an extremely flexible means of describing builds with only as much text as is absolutely necessary thanks to it's powerful plugin infrastructure and sensible conventions borrowed from existing tools.
