Hi, I really would like to start with Kotlin since I think it’s a great language in a very productive ecosystem. But since I have no prior experience with programming on the JVM (but with other programming languages) I struggle the most with the build system. I have not yet found a good introduction from start to more advanced use for gradle (with Kotlin script) for JVM beginners.
Topics I am esp. interested in are:
including an external Java or Kotlin library in my project
include a local library in my project
include an external binary library (C++ project with Java bindings (*.so files)) in my project
generate a build configuration that makes sure that all necessary files are includes in the final jar.
Could anybody point me to some tutorials suitable for an aspiring Kotlin programmer without Java experience?
