Introduction

This page outlines all the options that can be specified when building Gobblin using Gradle. The typical way of building Gobblin is to first checkout the code-base from GitHub and then build the code-base using Gradle.

git clone https://github.com/linkedin/gobblin.git
cd gobblin
./gradlew assemble

If one wants to compile the code as well as run the tests, use ./gradle assemble test or ./gradlew build.

There are a number of parameters that can be passed into the above command to customize the build process.

Options
