Maven vs Gradle equivalent commands

I’ve seen Gradle becoming more popular in recent years, but it wasn’t too long ago that Maven was the tool for managing dependencies and building/packaging apps.

From my own experience with both, here’s the commonly used equivalent commands:

mvn compileNo equivalent as gradle build compiles and packages?
mvn packagegradle build
mvn install (see note below)gradle build
mvn testgradle test

There is no direct equivalent to ‘mvn install’ in gradle, but if you depend on a local Maven repo, there is a Gradle plugin to publish packaged artifacts to a Maven repo – see here.
