  • Status changed from new to closed
  • Resolution set to fixed

I have refactored the plugin to not use gant/ant. Because native command line execution methods do not work properly with the external 'growlnotify' binary, I have written an applescript that does the same and does work with the regular execute methods. In the meantime the grails issue raised above was also labeled as 'wont fix':

"Graeme Rocher added a comment - 02/Nov/10 7:59 AM
In general the fact that GantBuilder? is available when the application is deployed as a WAR or during run-app is a bug. Gant is a build time only dependency and it is a side effect of another bug that it is available to you. If you want these to work you'll have to include gant as a compile time dependency of your plugin"

Including ant will result in KB's of extra overhead, and it should be a small-footprint plugin. Therefore, goodbye gant / ant, hello applescript ;)

Note: linux support has been disabled for now, to be enabled in the future...
