Dont have the choice of groovy while debugging java code


Hello, I have upgrade my intelli version to the new One.

But i can not have the choice of groovy expression ( and watch )  while debugging java program.

This is the future as defined in the site :


Evaluate Expression and Watches now accept Groovy expressions when debugging Java code. This may be convenient due to the compactness of Groovy, especially when working with collections.

May be i miss some configuration. can you please help ?

Here is my IntelliJ version :

IntelliJ IDEA 2016.1.1
Build #IU-145.597, built on March 29, 2016
JRE: 1.8.0_40-release-b132 x86_64
JVM: OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM by JetBrains s.r.o

Hi, you need to add groovy runtime (groovy.jar) to your module dependencies
