Installing Groovy


I am trying to install Groovy on a Linux machine. I have extracted the file to my folder using this command

"tar -xvf groovy-2.4.7-1-any.pkg.tar0.xz"

It has extracted successfully but what do I do afterwards to actually get it installed????

I have seen other sites that describe how to install it but it's not that clear to me.

Hi...

Try using the tool ("The Software Development Kit Manager") mentioned here. It might make this process easier.

Regards...

Look for a ReadMe file or an Install file it should tell you how to install it.

Generally it's ./configure, make, than make-install (as root).

@ardvark......I went to the terminal and did what they said to do on the website, but all it did was a long pause and went back to the command prompt

Ok it seems that I have the issue resolved with the JAVA_HOME and path, but now it's saying "Error: Could not find or load main class org.codehaus.groovy.tools.GroovyStarter
"

Looks like the tools are missing/not installed.

Did you try the The Software Development Kit Manager like ardvark suggested?

Have you tried yum install groovy? (in the repo's?)
