Eclipse and Conflicting Groovy Versions

Talking to a friend, he reminded me of an issue we had long ago … and he ran into again recently. Occasionally, doing groovy development in Eclipse, the IDE will occasionally complain about a conflicting version for the groovy compiler. Generally, this is due to just a minor revision number, and really shouldn’t be anything to worry about. It is, however, very annoying, and eclipse will just refuse to compile our code.

The fix is pretty simple: just do a “Configure Build Path”, select the Libraries tab, and remove the “Groovy Libraries” selection.

After that, all is good and the minor revision conflict is gone.

It’s been a while since I’ve had to do this; looking through my notes, I’m not sure if I used an online reference for this or not, so … if you came across this before me and I got the information from you, please forgive me for not giving credit where credit is due!
