GRAILS-7217 I have extracted code that guesses JAVA_HOME from Groovy project and added it to startGrails script


Which unix environments (other than Mac OS X) has this been tested on?

Maciej Mazur

I have personally tested it on Ubuntu 10.10 and Debian Squeeze (and it works). I assume that it was tested on more environments by folks from Groovy project
