At Red Hat we understand that choices are important. Even though Maven remains our opinionated build tool, we are continuously working towards providing support for other build tools, such as, Gradle, ANT etc.
Today Gradle has become a choice for many developers to build and automate software delivery in addition to other build tools.
Does Red Hat provide support for applications built using any tool other than Maven?
Red Hat Runtimes provides full support for binary deployment of the application jar(s) as per your subscription.
The binary jar could be produced using any build tool of choice (Gradle, ANT, etc).
The assumption is that a correctly configured build tool can produce the same application jar(s) as Maven. If a reported issue is suspected to be caused by a faulty application jar(s) packaging we might ask customers to report this to the build tool community or as a workaround use Maven instead.
Does Red Hat provide any tooling and support for any tool other than Maven?
Maven is still the build tool of choice for Red Hat Runtimes and Red Hat Runtimes offer full development and production support as per your subscription.
Currently, Red Hat Runtimes do not provide any guidance or support for any tool other than Maven for production and/or development support.
In the future, we are looking into providing the supported tooling for Gradle.
