Groovy Compilation in Plugin


Hi All,

I am writing a plugin to help with test automation. The plugin works fine except that I synthesize a Groovy class in the plugin, then compile it and auto-add it to the classpath...

When deployed the compilation fails with the following errors when I use AST annotations, e.g. @Field:

org.codehaus.groovy.control.MultipleCompilationErrorsException: startup failed:
Missions: Not an ASTTransformation: org.codehaus.groovy.transform.FieldASTTransformation declared by groovy.transform.Field

Missions: AST transformation implementation classes must be annotated with org.codehaus.groovy.transform.GroovyASTTransformation. org.codehaus.groovy.transform.FieldASTTransformation lacks this annotation.

I am compiling the Groovy from a String as follows:

def className = MISSIONS_CLASS
CompilerConfiguration compilerConfiguration = new CompilerConfiguration()
compilerConfiguration.setTargetDirectory(PathManager.pluginsPath + "/tesseraplugin/classes")
CompilationUnit compileUnit = new CompilationUnit(compilerConfiguration)
compileUnit.addSource(className, scriptBuffer.toString())

Without the annotations, everything works completely smoothly...

Any thoughts?

OK, I figured it out myself, I had to create a GroovyClassLoader from the PluginClassLoader then pass that into the CompilationUnit creation...
