Gradle can be installed on the major platforms, such as MacOS, Windows and Linux. Since JDK is used for compiling in Gradle, as prerequisite JDK version 6 or later needs to be installed. There is no specific hardware requirement for Gradle, but a system with a 16 GB RAM is considered as optimum. Once the Gradle is installed on the system, the environment variables need to be set properly. Gradle build package will not function, without environment variables being set.
