|August 10th, 2017||Thanks to the Groovy core team,
The latest Groovy-Eclipse release is available from the following Eclipse update sites. To install, point your Eclipse update manager to the update site appropriate for your Eclipse version.
|Eclipse Level||Release Update Site|
|4.3j8 (Kepler with Java 8)||http://dist.springsource.org/release/GRECLIPSE/e4.3-j8|
|4.2 and 3.8 (Juno)||http://dist.springsource.org/release/GRECLIPSE/e4.2|
Or, you can choose to install a development build, see below for more update sites. In general, our development builds are quite stable.
The install directory must be writable by the current user. Groovy-Eclipse cannot be installed into a shared install. This includes protected directories on windows like C:\Program Files. For more information Eclipse Bug 395516.
Use one of these update sites to install the latest and greatest Groovy-Eclipse. Development builds tend to be quite stable (they are not released unless all tests pass). To install, paste the appropriate update site below into your Eclipse update manager, select the artifacts to install and follow the instructions.
|Eclipse Level||Snapshot Update Site|
|4.3j8 (Kepler with Java 8 patch)||http://dist.springsource.org/snapshot/GRECLIPSE/e4.3-j8|
|4.2 and 3.8 (Juno)||http://dist.springsource.org/snapshot/GRECLIPSE/e4.2|
How to Install
Start with a compatible version of Eclipse (available from http://eclipse.org/downloads). Since Groovy-Eclipse relies on the Eclipse Java Development Tools (JDT), almost any flavor of Eclipse that includes the JDT will be compatible. This includes the Eclipse IDE for Java Developers, Eclipse IDE for Java EE Developers, Eclipse IDE for Eclipse Committers, etc. Flavors such as Eclipse IDE for C/C++ or PHP Developers are not compatible without the addition of the JDT feature. If you are interested in Grails tooling, then you must install the Groovy/Grails Tool Suite.
- Go to Help > Install New Software...
- Click on Add...
- Paste the update site URL appropriate for your version of Eclipse and click Add.
- Select the new entry in the Work with list of update sites.
- Expand Main Package and select the Eclipse Groovy Development Tools feature.
- Click Next and follow the prompts. Restart when asked.
- Rejoice! You installed the Eclipse Groovy Development Tools.
