Maven Repositories

If you wish to embed Groovy in your application, you may just prefer to point to your favourite maven repositories or the codehaus maven repository. You should consult the individual pom files for the exact details but here is a summary of the main supported artifactIds and groupIds:

Groovy 1.7.X / 1.6.X

Available in the Maven 2 repositories.

<groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
<artifactId>groovy</artifactId>
<version>x.y.z</version>

Treats Antlr, ASM, etc. as standard dependencies. Only useful if you happen to also use the same versions of these jars yourself as it will save you having two copies of these jars. Optional dependencies are marked as optional. You may need to include some of the optional dependencies to use some features of Groovy, e.g. AntBuilder, GroovyMBeans, etc.

<groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
<artifactId>groovy-all</artifactId>
<version>x.y.z</version>

Includes jarjar versions of Antlr, ASM, Commons-CLI and Retrotranslator runtime. Allows you or your other dependencies (e.g. hibernate) to use other versions of these jars. Optional dependencies are marked as optional. You may need to include some of the optional dependencies to use some features of Groovy, e.g. AntBuilder, GroovyMBeans, etc.

Groovy 1.5.X (including 1.1.x milestone releases)

Available in the Maven 2 repositories.

Available in the Maven 1 and Maven 2 repositories.

<groupId>groovy</groupId>
<artifactId>groovy</artifactId>
<version>1.0</version>

<groupId>groovy</groupId>
<artifactId>groovy-all</artifactId>
<version>1.0</version>

Includes jarjar versions of Antlr and ASM. Allows you or your other dependencies (e.g. hibernate) to use other versions of these jars. Dependencies mandated for all optional parts of Groovy, e.g. AntBuilder, GroovyMBeans, etc.

For historical purposes, the releases candidates for 1.0 are also available by using the appropriate version instead of 1.0 in the above version tag.

Snapshot Releases

In addition to the stable and milestone releases you can find intermediate SNAPSHOT releases at the codehaus snapshot maven repository.

Other ways to get Groovy

You can use the Groovy Enviroment Management Tool if you want to maintain and switch easily between different versions of Groovy. 

If you're on MacOS and have Homebrew installed, you can run "brew install groovy" to install Groovy.

If you're on MacOS and have MacPorts installed, you can run "sudo port install groovy" to install the latest Groovy release.

If you're on Windows, you can also use the NSIS Windows installer.

You may download other distributions of Groovy from this site.

If you prefer to live on the bleeding edge, you can also grab the source code from SVN.

If you are an IDE user, you can just grab the latest IDE plugin and follow the plugin installation instructions.
