Dierk,

Thanks for taking questions here -- I'm new to Groovy and I look forward to reading your book.

I've downloaded and am using the Groovy plug-in for Eclipse. I am a bit underwhelmed, though, at the feature set of the plugin.

Are there alternatives to the Groovy-supplied plugin? How do I make my Eclipse install a better environment for Groovy development?

Thanks,
Curt

Cool wording ;-) Hits the nail on the head.

I'm afraid there is no better solution for eclipse that I know of - but I'm only a very sporadic eclipse user.
What about trying a new IDE on a long afternoon?

cheers
Dierk

Hi Curt,

You can add basic GSP auto-complete functionality by associating .gsp files to your JSP editor.

Then on top of your GSP add the taglib definition.



Just like you, I'm hoping that one day Eclipse would catch up in terms of Groovy/Grails support.
