Groovy Monkey v 0.3.0

James Ervin-2
I have released version 0.3.0 of my Groovy Monkey tool. The ( IMHO )
killer app for doing rapid prototyping, Eclipse API exploration,
Eclipse Task Automation and Eclipse Plugin development in general.

Yes it is called Groovy Monkey because it was a originally just a port
of Eclipes Monkey to Groovy, but now Groovy Monkey allows you to write
Eclipse scripts in any scripting language, well as long as it is
Groovy, Beanshell or Ruby. ;)

There are a number of new features as excerpted from the noteworthy doc
in the help plugin:

Version 0.3.0 - September 11, 2006 * Changed the Groovy Monkey default
project name to GroovyMonkeyScripts as per issue: [ 1536760 ] Change
GroovyMonkeyExamples to GroovyMonkeyScripts * Added an Include-Bundle
dialog to the editor context menu, to the Package  Explorer view and
Navigator. * Added Include and Include-Bundle dialogs to Groovy Editor
context menu command set. * Added a Java search, modeled on the PDE
search, to the outline view to look for all the classes exposed from an
included bundle in the set of exported packages. So if your 'External
Plug-in Libraries' project is setup, you should see the classes. *
Added a Script-Path: metadata tag that is automatically maintained by
Groovy Monkey, it is set to the workspace path of the script. * The
Script Outline view now has menu commands to switch between
Flat/Hierarchical views of the binding. * There are now error markers
signifying some command errors with script metadata and some quick
fixes to assist. * There is now some content assist on the Script
Metadata tags. * A new submenu of the top level 'Groovy Monkey' has
been added called 'Edit Script'. The Edit Script submenu reflects the
top menu, but instead of launching
the scripts, it opens the editor for you. * Added Hippie completion to
the editor. * Added ability to map dom vars to different names for the
local script, enables solution for variable name conflicts between DOM

The main update site is for
Eclipse 3.2 and for
Eclipse 3.1.2.

I also have a blog that focuses on Groovy Monkey at:

So if anybody out there is working with Eclipse and would like to be
able to prototype or write automation scripts in Beanshell, this is a
tool worth looking at.
