Let me go to the other IDE, that is my most favorite IDE ever created in mankind. The one IDE that you are guaranteed to work the best after you spend 90% of your time fixing it.
So in Eclipse(STS), I created a Spring ROO project (I know not Groovy or Grails here, just wait), it was great built all the scaffolding and such just like Grails does. However, I know that I would love to have some Groovy classes/code in my app to simplify a lot of stuff I need to customize. Here is where STS fails, I can't get it to compile a .groovy file, in the IDE I get two red x's for missing a semicolon. First on the package line and the second on the last line. It won't even show errors for the imports that are missing so far.
Any ideas of how to get Groovy to work in Eclipse. I even went through STS's dashboard and "install" Groovy, but that doesn't work. I am also using the latest Groovy 1.8.2
