files that detail all of a projects dependencies. The
files can be useful for things like:1. reviewing dependency changes on a pull request, 2. diagnosing JAR hell issues and 3. for tooling to automatically find a codebase's dependencies. See https://github.com/kronicle-tech/dependencies-file-gradle-plugin/blob/main/gradle-dependencies.yaml for an example file and https://github.com/kronicle-tech/dependencies-file-gradle-plugin for more info.
Gradle plugin is a very simply settings plugin that ensures that the Java version used to execute your Gradle build is in a certain range, e.g. >= 17. If the version does not match the build is aborted with a big friendly message in the following form:
I hope this plugin will be of use to you and maybe even save you a couple of minutes tracking build failures in the future. The plugin is under MIT license and its code is available at https://github.com/brunoessmann/check-java-version-gradle-plugin/

Maven and Gradle are two build tools, That find the dependencies to use, Maven is a powerhouse, While Gradle is less obtuse, Maven's strength is in its conventions, It's a standard tool to choose, Gradle's scripts are more flexible, And more freedom they will let you use, Maven is an XML based system, That can be a bit verbose, Gradle uses Groovy, Which is more concise, Maven is good for Java, But Gradle is much more, It can do many languages, And you can adjust the build score, Maven is traditional and tried, But Gradle is much more modern, Maven is a bit more rigid, But Gradle is more often chosen.
