I decided to keep this KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). Nothing too crazy here and think of this blog as a reference point in relation to getting started with Groovy for PBCS. I’m hoping to show the more detailed / more clever things in future post in this series. This post will cover How to Install, Setup and Test Groovy.
How to Install & Setup Groovy?
Download the Software
Run the installer with an Admin User
Select your language
Review and Accept the License Agreement (but only if you agree, but if you don’t agree guess what, you can’t use the software 😦 )
Select the Full Install Type
Select an install location or accept the default
I can hear Yoda in the Background: Patience You Must Have My Young Padawan. Name your Start Menu Folder and Install
When the install completes click Next
Set Home, Paths and Variables
If your Java Home is not set you will get this error
Set the Java Home in Environment Variables
Accept the Defaults
