About

Scripting language like Groovy (or JRuby) is an ideal choice for Java developer to do quick prototyping. The biggest benefit of Eclipse support for Groovy plug-in development is that while changing the plug-in on-the-fly there's no need to start a separate Eclipse instance or restart the IDE when something was changed in the code. This would rapidly improve the speed of lightweight plug-in development.

This project aims to add ability to write plugins in JVM-based scripting language, like Groovy and JRuby. But it could be a starting point for any other JVM scripting language, like BeanShell or Jython.

Status

Deliverables

The main results to be reached:

- An Eclipse extension/plug-in to (re)load (Groovy/JRuby) scripts on the fly.

- Command line console support to modify and change the program behavior interactively. This could look like in case Apache Derby ij plug-in
