So I had a need to create a jar of a webservice rest client. I had some existing code in Grails (java/groovy) and wanted to move it to a standalone jar, not sure why but I started to read about Gradle as an alternative to maven's large pom.xml file.
My Requirements were:
Upload to Nexus Repo
The following was my "build.gradle"
That is it... easy... small, quick... now what else should i convert to gradle
