install-dependency

Purpose

Installs a JAR dependency, making it available to Grails dependency resolution mechanism.

Examples

grails install-dependency mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.5
grails install-dependency mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.5 --dir=lib
grails install-dependency --group=mysql --name=mysql-connector-java --version=5.1.5

Description

Usage:

grails install-dependency [dependency]

Arguments:

The install-dependency command allows the installation of a JAR dependency into the Ivy cache so that it can be resolved locally (without needing to configure a repository explicitly).

In its most simple form you can pass a single argument that defines the dependency in the form "group:name:version":

grails install-dependency mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.5

Grails has some built in common public Maven repositories that will be used to resolve the dependency. If the dependency is not found you can specify your own repository using the repository argument:

grails install-dependency mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.5 --repository=http://download.java.net/maven/2

By default the JARs will be resolved to your local Ivy cache (typically USER_HOME/.ivy2/cache), if you wish the JAR files to be placed in an alternative directory you can use the dir argument:

grails install-dependency mysql:mysql-connector-java:5.1.5 --dir=lib
