The sources (and README.txt telling you how to set up the libraries and dll's) can be found in subversion:

The jar file compiled against Eclipse SDK 3.3 jars can be found attached:

To run groov-swt application you also need some of the eclipse libraries, so download groovy-swt-0.3-including-Eclipse-libs.ZIP and unzip all the jar files into the lib directory of your groovy installation.
