Installing Ivy plugin?

I'm new to IntelliJ (using 10.0) and Groovy.  In trying to use the @Grab annotation in Groovy, I get an error that says "Cannot @Grab without Ivy, please add it to your module dependencies (NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/ivy/core/report/ResolveReport)".  So now I look to the Ivy plugin, but the instructions are not clear for how to install it.  I'm looking here:

http://plugins.intellij.net/plugin/?id=3612

and here:

http://confluence.jetbrains.net/display/CONTEST/Getting+Started

but the "getting started" page seems to start not at the beginning but somewhere in the middle.  Normally I think installing a plugin should be an easy exercise.  Can anyone point me to some working instructions?

Thanks.

Hello Matt,

You don't need to install the Ivy plugin to have @Grab work; you just need
to add Ivy itself to the dependencies of your module.

I'm new to IntelliJ (using 10.0) and Groovy.  In trying to use the
@Grab annotation in Groovy, I get an error that says "Cannot @Grab

how to install it.  I'm looking here:

Sounds great.  So, I right-click on my project and choose Open Module Settings and then the Dependencies tab in there.  But then what?

Can you clarify how I am supposed to add an Ivy dependency to my module in Idea?  I'm working with a project that was created as a Java/Maven project.

Thanks.

Hi Matt,

Please check this reference page.

Denis,

That's exactly where I was looking.  However, previously in this thread I was told that I did not need to download and install the Ivy plugin.  If that's the case, then what library or libraries am I supposed to add to the dependencies?  Surfing around the Jetbrains installation, I didn't see anything that looks like Ivy.  There was no Ivy folder in the plugins directory.  Therefore I decided to go ahead and install the IvyIdea plugin via File->Settings->Plugins->Available.  After installing it, I can see IvyIdea occur in a couple of places on the GUI, but there is still nothing called Ivy or IvyIdea in the plugins folder of the Idea installation.  Nor can I see anything Ivy-related to select when I try to add a dependency via Open Module Settings->Project Structure dialog->Dependencies tab->Add.  Is this Ivy dependency a Single-Entry Module Library, Library, or Module Dependency?  It doesn't seem to matter which I pick, as there still seems to be nothing Ivy-related to select in any case (and this was true both before and after I actually installed the IvyIdea plugin).  And of course I still get my compiler error:

Cannot @Grab without Ivy, please add it to your module dependencies (NoClassDefFoundError: org/apache/ivy/core/report/ResolveReport)

If I go to the IvyIdea page and manually download the plugin, I can see it contains 5 jars.  So I suppose I could manually drop the IvyIdea plugin into the plugins folder and see what happens, but I'm inclined to trust that process less than actually managing the plugin/dependency from the Idea application itself, which is what I've tried so far.

Thanks,

Matt

Hi Matt,

Just download ivy jars from http://ant.apache.org/ivy and add them as dependencies to your module.

That did resolve the compilation error on @Grab, thanks.

I added these lines found at https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.apache.ivy/ivy to my project's pom.xml so Maven could resolve the dependency:

<dependency<!-- support @Grab in Groovy scripts -->
    <groupId>org.apache.ivy</groupId>
    <artifactId>ivy</artifactId>  
    <version>2.4.0</version>
    <scope>provided</scope>
</dependency>
