Description athompson 2011-12-19 20:32:29 UTC
Now that grails 2.0 is out, it's common to have multiple grails projects with multiple grails versions.  However, Netbeans currently only allows you to specify one grails path so if you need to work with a grails project with a differing version, you must close all open grails projects, change the grails path in options, possibly restart, and load the new project.  It would be better if you had a "grails platforms" dialog similar to the "java platforms" dialog (and others) under the Tools menu, and you were allowed to specify which platform to use with each project individually.

Hi athompson, I'll definitely try to do this for the next version. Don't want to promise anything since there is a lot of things on my agenda, but I'll try.

Cool, thanks!

like to check status on this one. I am fan of netbeans simply because i am working on php and java/grails simutanously however i find it hard when a few apps need to  run at same time to test api integrations locally, which they all have different grails versions.

perhaps it can be defined in grails project properties with the path to grails folder?

Are there any changes to this issue ?
I think this is a must have feature for everybody developing with Grails.

(In reply to barmeier from comment #5)


The current development branch doesn't have improvements regarding this issue.

However, since I've been working with the NetBeans development team to improve  groovy/grails support I've also felt the need to have this feature.

I'll be evaluating how we could add this feature once I'm done with the bugs I'm working on.
