The Gradle Build Tool is quite powerful and flexible, perhaps too flexible if you ask around. Every where you turn you encounter custom builds with different conventions and arrangements. If only there was a way to follow a structure than ensures top-down constraints in a build. Well it turns out it’s possible!
