More on Groovy-Eclipse and Maven

I've had a few requests for the source code for the Groovy-Eclipse integration for maven, as well as a sample project that uses it. You can get both the sample project and groovy-eclipse compiler plugin for maven.

They are packaged as two m2eclipse projects, and it is recommended (although not necessary) to import them into Eclipse to use them.

The groovy-eclipse-compiler project contains the compiler integration. It is a single Java class that calls into the Groovy-enhanced JDT compiler. This maven plugin uses plexus to hook into maven's compiler plugin.

The groovy-eclipse-maven-tests project is a very simple maven project that has a few Groovy and Java classes that interact with each other. If you want to create your own project using the Groovy-Eclipse maven integration, I would recommend starting with this sample project.

Please let me know if you have any problems.
