NetBeans 6.8 and Griffon

Now you can develop your Griffon application within NetBeans 6.8. The Griffon plugin is maintained from Geertjan and works now with version 6.8.

Before it was necessary to

  1. Create a griffon app via command line:
    griffon create-app
  2. Import via eclipse project importer.
  3. Set up the command line arguments in NetBeans (except the classpath jars):
    exec java -server -Xmx512M -classpath /path/griffon-0.2/lib/groovy-all-1.6.4.jar:/path/griffon-0.2/dist/griffon-cli-0.2.jar -Dprogram.name=griffon -Dgroovy.starter.conf=/path/griffon-0.2/conf/groovy-starter.conf -Dgriffon.home=/path/griffon-0.2 -Dbase.dir=. -Dtools.jar=/usr/lib/jvm/java-6-sun//lib/tools.jar org.codehaus.griffon.cli.support.GriffonStarter –main org.codehaus.griffon.cli.GriffonScriptRunner –conf /path/griffon-0.2/conf/groovy-starter.conf –classpath .
  4. and disable ‘Compile On Save’

So its great to have it easier now in NetBeans!
