I use a uncompiled groovy class which I load and compile at runtime in my standard java program with the following code:

This class needs to access other groovy classes, which reside in another folder. Is there the possibility to load a complete folder of groovy source code, maybe even recursively...

Thank you very much in advance!

The GroovyScriptEngine has a constructor where I can tell all my folders where groovy scripts reside in...
