A daemon is a computer program that runs as a background process, rather

than being under the direct control of an interactive user.

Gradle runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and uses several supporting

libraries that require a non-trivial initialization time.

As a result, it can sometimes seem a little slow to start. The solution to this

problem is the Gradle Daemon: a long-lived background process that

executes your builds much more quickly than would otherwise be the case.

We accomplish this by avoiding the expensive bootstrapping process as

well as leveraging caching, by keeping data about your project in memory.

Running Gradle builds with the Daemon is no different than without
