Details

When the Gradle integration was built, the moz.build system handled the thirdparty Java sources as an independent JAR file, and the majority of developers were working on Fennec.  Now, the Gradle system handles incremental Java compilation natively and the majority of developers are working on GeckoView.  The cost of the Gradle module (extra configuration steps, lots of verbose output) outweigh the potential build savings (faster incremental builds, not having to check lots of Java files).  This ticket tracks folding thirdparty into app.
