I am working in a environment which currently does not have internet access. I would like to bring over my groovy eclipse plugin but I cannot find out how to get it as an archive. Anyone have any ideas how to get this?

If it's downloadable as an archive, just unzip it in your Eclipse directory. If it's not, you'd have to look at the connected machine's Groovy plugin info and zip up all the artifacts etc. and determine what configs are necessary. The plugins and features dir (for example, the 3.4 distro of the plugin available here) can just be unzipped in your Eclipse dir.

Not sure what other hoops you'd have to jump through.

You need to choose a zip for your appropriate Eclipse version. You probably want to choose the most recent drop:

Do *not* unzip into your eclipse install directory. Instead, open up your p2 installer and point it to your downloaded zip file. Then, go through the steps to install through p2. The zip files are the zipped update sites, so you need to go through p2 to install.
I agree. Here's the link:
