To convert Maven to Gradle, the only step is to run
gradle init in the directory containing the POM. This will convert the Maven build to a Gradle build, generating a settings.gradle file and one or more build.gradle files.
To convert Gradle to Maven, first, Maven plugin need to be added in the build.gradle file.
build.gradle should look like this:
apply plugin: 'java'
apply plugin: 'maven'
group = 'com.bazlur.app'
// artifactId is taken by default, from folder name
version = '0.1-SNAPSHOT'
Then, simply run Gradle install in the directory.
Lastly, simply run
gradle install and the directory containing build.gradle will do the job. It will create pom-default.xml in the build/poms subfolder.
