  • How to install Groovy-Eclipse on closed network?

    I've been looking unsuccessfully for an archive file download so that I can install Groovy support on a closed network. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Also, is there an archive download for Grails?

    Thanks,
    Gary

    Hi Gary!

    The Grails support can be installed from the STS update site, which you can also download for local use from: http://www.springsource.com/downloads/sts (take a look at "Other Downloads" and "2.6.0.RELEASE").

    Andy or Andrew might know more about a zipped download for the Groovy update site.

    HTH,

      Hi Martin,

      Thanks for the response.

      Does the STS update site download already have Groovy support as a function of the abovementioned Grails support? I already have STS installed from the springsource-tool-suite-2.6.0.SR1-e3.6.2-win32.zip file; is the springsource-tool-suite-2.6.0.RELEASE-e3.6-updatesite.zip file meant to be installed over a standard Eclipse package or can I use it with an STS install as well? (i.e. Is there going to be a version conflict with the earlier version update site & my STS 2.6.0.SR1-e3.6.2 installation?)

      Also, who are Andy & Andrew? Do you think they're monitoring this forum/thread or do I need to contact them more directly about the Groovy-Eclipse zip?

      Thanks again,
      Gary

        Hi Gary!

        The STS update site that you can download doesn't contain Groovy-Eclipse. That needs to be installed from a different update site. Andy and Andrew are both working on Groovy-Eclipse and I have pointed them to this thread, so they can tell you where to find Groovy-Eclipse as downloadable updatesite.

        You can use the STS update site with an already installed STS, should be no problem. And since 2.6.0.SR1 and 2.6.0.RELEASE doesn't have any changed bundles (just a new Roo version, but that is not part of the update site), you shouldn't run into version conflicts.

        HTH,
        Martin

          Hi,

          All the information you need is available through the Groovy Eclipse homepage ( http://groovy.codehaus.org/Eclipse+Plugin ).

          You can use a zipped archive of a dev build (here: http://ci.repository.codehaus.org/gr...pshot/e36/old/ ) or a zipped archive of the most recent release 2.1.2 (from here: http://dist.springsource.org/release...0-1500-e36.zip ).

          Download the snapshot locally
          Do not unzip or move into your dropins directory
          Start eclipse
          Help -> Install new software -> Add...
          Select the location of the zip you just downloaded
          Install as you would from the regular update site
          cheers
          Andy

            Andy,

            Thanks for pointing me to the zipped archives.

            I finally found http://dist.springsource.org/release...0-1500-e36.zip on the "Groovy-Eclipse 2.1.2 New and Noteworthy" page but I still don't see it on http://groovy.codehaus.org/Eclipse+Plugin, although there is a link to an older zip there (http://dist.springsource.org/release...35-RELEASE.zip). You might want to consider putting a link to the latest zipped version on the home page (possibly under the "Availibility" section) in order to save people time in the future.

            Thanks again,
            Gary
