JetGroovy 1.5 for IntelliJ IDEA is Out

  • submit to reddit

We are pleased to announce the general availability of JetGroovy 1.5. This popular Groovy development plug-in for IntelliJ IDEA has been extended with a number of highly anticipated features:

  • Multiple new Groovy-aware refactorings
  • Extended Groovy coding assistance with support for dynamic properties and methods
  • Groovy-ready debugger that handles mixed Java and Groovy code
  • Smart GroovyDoc browser
  • Support for automatic testing with JUnit/TestNG
  • Improved Grails coding assistance with support for JavaScript and custom tags
  • Complete support for Grails plugins

To learn more about Groovy/Grails support in IntelliJ IDEA, please visit the dedicated Features page.

JetGroovy plug-in supports all of IntelliJ IDEA 7.0 releases, including 7.0.2 and 7.0.3. You can download it and find more information about it at or via the IntelliJ IDEA Plug-in Manager.

You might also be pleased to learn that starting from version 8.0 of IntelliJ IDEA Groovy/Grails support is going to be part of the standard distribution package, instead of being provided through a plug-in.

Thank you for the wonderful news!  Especially that bit about 8.0, that is exciting.

Very cool.   Can't wait to try out the improved refactoring support and all the Grails integration features.

Keep up the great work, this plugin is so far and away better than any other IDE support.

 I have been waiting for this.

 Keep up the good work.

Probably one of the best IDE so far.

But the lack of package support for domain classes is a no go for me :-(

JetGroovy supports packages for domain classes. All you need is to make sure that the grails-app/domain folder is configured as a source root in the module settings.

Hope this helps :)

Damm,how did I miss that ? :-)

After creating packages under the domain I can now create domain classs with a package.

You have won a new user




PS : ok, the domain graph dependencies does not work yet (it seems ! I'm careful now !) with packages but this is really a minor issue for me;-)

 Confusion is a word which can not be defined in simple words because it penetrates in human's mind with negative impact. If there is something to share more about ozessay because most of the people have same level of confusion, therefore we believe that our services are everlasting and do not need any further assistance for more briefing. I am happy to share about my website which would help you smartly.
