PostHeaderIcon How to compile both Java classes and Groovy scripts with Maven?

Case

Your project includes both Java classes and Groovy scripts. You would like to build all of them at the same time with Maven: this must be possible, because, after all, Groovy scripts are run on a Java Virtual Machine.

Solution

In your pom.xml, configure the maven-compiler-plugin as follows:

            <plugin>
                <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
                <artifactId>maven-compiler-plugin</artifactId>
                <version>3.0</version>
                <configuration>
                    <compilerId>groovy-eclipse-compiler</compilerId>
                    <source>1.6</source>
                    <target>1.6</target>
                </configuration>
                <dependencies>
                    <dependency>
                        <groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
                        <artifactId>groovy-eclipse-compiler</artifactId>
                        <version>2.8.0-01</version>
                    </dependency>
                    <dependency>
                        <groupId>org.codehaus.groovy</groupId>
                        <artifactId>groovy-eclipse-batch</artifactId>
                        <version>2.1.5-03</version>
                    </dependency>
                </dependencies>
            </plugin>

With such setup, default compiler (which cannot compile Groovy scripts parallelly of Java sources) will be replaced with Eclipse’s one (which can).
