Really happy with Groovy Eclipse plugin problem marker integration
April 18, 2007
I’m really happy with the latest Groovy Eclipse plugin that I’ve picked up. I’ve been using build 18.104.22.16870406a for about a week now and its really stable (not sure if its the latest btw). The best thing for me is that the Groovy compiler problems are now showing up in the Eclipse problem view, and the markers identify the correct line of Groovy code. That is a big step forward. Now that I’m cutting Groovy code on an almost daily basis I really appreciate good Eclipse integration. I thought Neal Ford’s comment (“I would rather write Groovy code in VI than Java code in IDEA“) was quite funny, but I’m not quite there yet. Scott Hickey & Co. continue to do a stellar job over at the Codehaus, well done guys!
