3 Usage

Installing the plugin

First you need to install the plugin into a Grails application: using the recommended way, configure it as a dependency in BuildConfig.groovy:

plugins {
    compile ':apache-pivot-grails:<plugin version>'
	// compile 'pivot_stuff:apache-pivot-grails:<plugin version>'  // or use this if the previous line doesn't work …
	// or at least use the runtime scope …


  • a Servlet container to run the Web application


This plugin allows your Grails application to use Apache Pivot 2.x features on Server side, and (if enabled the JarDownloadServlet in web.xml) even to forward Pivot jars to Clients, to be able to use the same jars even in Applets and Java Web Start Applications.
