Gradle Enterprise 2019.2

The newest Gradle Enterprise release 2019.2 includes a new build performance trend dashboard, several new features for Maven users, significant improvements to caching for various popular Maven plugins, and the ability to run Gradle build scans for composite and continuous builds.

The blog post Monitoring build performance trends using Gradle Enterprise walks you through how to use the new dashboards to tell whether your builds are slowing down over time, and how to pinpoint what might be contributing to the slowdown.

For Maven users, several features previously only available for Gradle builds were added in Gradle Enterprise 2019.2. This includes the performance dashboard and goal inputs comparison, an invaluable view for debugging cache misses. In addition, several maven plugins such as Javadoc, Checkstyle, and JAXB2 are now cacheable.

Gradle users can now take advantage of build scans for composite and continuous builds.

For more detailed information on the changes in this release, see the Gradle Enterprise 2019.2 release notes.
