Artifactory provides tight integration with Gradle. All that is needed is a simple modification of your build.gradle script file with a few configuration parameters.

The parameters needed depend on the version of Gradle that you are running.

If you are using the original publication version of Gradle use the Gradle Aritfactory Plugin.

if you are using the new publication version of Gradle use the Gradle Publishing Artifactory Plugin.

The Gradle Artifactory project is an open source project that is freely available for download.

The following sections describe the main configuration steps and provide a sample Gradle script that shows the information you need to get started using Gradle with Artifactory.
