  • Why do so many java developers fail to understand the importance of keeping dependencies up to date? | 2021-05-30
    A lot of developers don't realize that build tools can check this for them. I wrote Gradle's dependency updates plugin after having come from Maven and been surprised that the functionality was missing. A common theme that I've seen from the Android community is an expectation that the linter or IDE will flag it, whereas that only checks Google's dependencies (or at least used to). For server-side, I think most are afraid of breaking things indirectly and want to slide their changes through.
  • Gradle 7.0 Released
    IDE version update hints have always been very unreliable. We use this plugin:
    There are downsides, of course. Typos lead to obscure error messages (which at least it points to the line with the typo) and there's zero support from the IDE, so I get no update suggestions (but there are handy alternatives, such as gradle-versions-plugin).

  • The Problem with Gradle | 2021-01-05
    With gradle you need to use some plugin you need to add them manually, you need to install some third party plugin to check if your up to date and another one to update them which often don't really work. Then you need to add some new task to resolve them properly or else you will get milestones and release candidates and what not because of all the different versioning in the eco system.
