Git is a prominent open-source version control system, introduced by Linus Torvalds in 2005.
Git is well-known for rapid software delivery; it is an all-in-one DevOps Tool that has gained enormous success and global recognition. Git helps the development team to execute all the development tasks straight from planning, analyzing, shipping, monitoring to security.
Whereas GitHub is a for-profit company that provides cloud-based Git repository hosting services.
Advantages of Git:
1. Best documentation:
Git has an enormous amount of content that helps the developers to tackle any sort of problems during software development. Here, developers get useful guides and help sections; even you can learn to generate SSH keys
Git beautifully supports Markdown, a lightweight mark-up language that allows users to write in text format and later converts the text in respective HTML format.
3. Provides Gists:
Git provides a special feature Gists that widely converts one or more files into a working git repository.
Using an online repository is best for keeping the codes, no need to worry about the code, anytime and from anywhere one can fetch their codes.
Disadvantages of Git
There is a lack of security of data/codes on GitHub as anyone with login credentials can hamper one's property and here GitHub needs to work on.
2. Not stable with other OS:
Git was primarily built for Linux so it works a little slowly with another system.
Jenkins is an open-source automation server released on 2 February 2011, written in Java by Kohsuke Kawaguchi, a software developer at Sun MicroSystems. Jenkins is majorly used to implement CI (Continuous Integration)/CD (Continuous Delivery) workflows, popularly known as pipelines that define the series of steps that the server will take to execute tasks.
Jenkins helps you manage different software development life cycle stages like building, committing, testing, documenting, packaging, and deployment.
Advantages of Jenkins:
Jenkins is free; it is an open-source platform.
Jenkins offers an ample number of plug-ins to the developers, and any software developer can easily develop Jenkins plug-ins. Plug-ins support them to execute their task more efficiently. Dashboard plug-ins, the test-analysing plug-in is some of them.
3. Huge Community support:
Jenkins has huge community support of nearly 10 lakh users globally.
4. Team in Sync:
Jenkins keeps the team on the same page, supports centralized working so that every team member moves in sync.
5. Best in Debug:
With Jenkins, software developers can quickly and easily find bugs or errors in the codes.
Disadvantages of Jenkins:
1. Compatibility of Plugins:
All the plugins do not show compatibility with pipeline syntax, and plug-ins requires an update.
Jenkins infrastructure requires maintenance, all by you & Jenkins tools are tough to install making it a tricky and challenging task.
A Gradle is an automation tool that is used to develop software, and the building process includes linking, compiling, and packaging the codes. Gradle is widely appreciated because of its high maintainability, usability, extendibility, performance, and flexibility.
Gradle is used for JVM languages like Java, Scala, or Scala and it also supports a wide range of IDEs. Gradle can be used to develop large Android projects, Java projects with great proficiency.
Advantages of Gradle:
Gradle is free software that is licensed by Apache Software License (ACL).
2. Higher performance:
Gradle offers a higher performance by reutilizing the output of previous results and processes only having different inputs.
3. General-purpose automation tool:
Gradle is a general-purpose automation build tool that can be used to build several types of software.
4. Supports Ant tasks:
Gradle provides support to the Ant build projects.
Disadvantages of Gradle:
1. Tough to Integrate:
No easy integration, there is a need for technical knowledge.
2. Lack of community:
The Gradle community is not as large as compared with Maven
