Details Group Tabs


The Groovy Development Tools (GDT) provides Eclipse and Maven support for the Apache Groovy programming language. GDT adds full-featured IDE support for Groovy including editors, wizards, content assist, debugging, refactoring and searching.

The GDT requires the Eclipse Java Development Tools (JDT) as it builds upon Java/JVM support, including Java interoperability. If your Eclipse flavor does not include JDT, you must install it first.

GDT does not provide any direct support for Grails. If you want Grails tooling, then please consider Groovy-Grails Tools Suite or Spring Tool Suite for your Grails projects.

Conflict with Eclipse 4.5 Mars is still present.

I managed to get it working by installing directly form update site http : // instead of marketplace.

I appear to have installed this in Mars... do you know how I actually get it to do an autoformat (of a .gradle file)?

Try to install this Plugin in Eclipse Mars (4.5), because of your Update andrew to Eclipse Mars at April 21, 2015.<\br>
But the Groovy Eclipse Feature is not installable. Because it install from e4.2.<\br>
The Groovy Compiler is installed, becaus it hase no conflictiong dependencies to Eclipse 4.5.<\br>
Have you any Plans to update this Plugin to Eclipse Mars?

I'd like to echo that support for Eclipse 4.5 would be very appreciated.
