<sarcasm>I am having more fun with the Maia beta than I can possibly imagine.</sarcasm>
I moved an existing Grails 1.1.1 project from Idea 8 to the Maia beta. We use the grails-maven plugin so all of our dependencies are in the pom.xml file. Aside from the issue that I posted yesterday related to WebFlowTestCase, the project compiles and runs unit tests fine under Maia. The problem is that when I try to run the project within Maia, it does not pass the classpath parameter on the command line, so none of the dependencies from the pom (that are also in the .iml file) are included. Thus, it fails as soon as it tries to load a service that depends on one of those libraries. This did work in Idea 8.
I thought that maybe something went wrong in the conversion process, so I tried removing the .idea and .iml directory/file to create the Intellij project from scratch. First I tried to created it from external model and pointed it at the pom. The new project was created and all the dependencies were brought in, but Intellij did not detect that it was a grails app. I deleted the project again and tried creating it as a grails app. This time it gave me the grails views, but no dependencies from the pom were created.
Has anyone else converted such a project from Idea 8 and had it run fine? Any general tips on how to tell Maia that a given project is a Grails project now that there is no such thing as a Grails facet?
BTW - as a last attempt to get it to work, I did try opening the Maven Projects tool window and selecting the Plugins->grails->grails:run-app target. That did work. I would just prefer it if the normal run/debug commands worked.
