Installing Griffon Snapshot

Griffon is to Desktop as Grails is to Web Apps.

Here are some instructions for installing the latest Griffon Dev Snapshot on Windows.

Assumptions: java is already installed.

1. Download the source (http://svn.codehaus.org/griffon) using your favorite Subversion tool. I like SmartSVN (http://www.syntevo.com/smartsvn)
2. cd download\core\trunk
3. run ant to build the code
4. create an installer. ant create-installer-izpack (look in ant\build\installer.xml for other options)
5. execute trunk\dist\griffon-installer-0.1.SNAPSHOT.jar (java -jar griffon-installer-0.1.SNAPSHOT.jar)

NOTE: Depending upon when you download the source, there is an error in the windows installer. It puts a PATH entry in the User variables that contains ${OLD_PATH_VALUE}. This creates a problem. A work around is to delete the PATH entry in User Variables and add the appropriate info to the System PATH variable. You should also make sure that GRIFFON_HOME has been defined.

The codehaus bamboo site is also configured to cache current successful builds. ( http://bamboo.ci.codehaus.org/browse/GRIFFON-TRUNK ) Although you will need to dig into the most recent completed build to get the link, for example build-36 is available here http://bamboo.ci.codehaus.org/download/GRIFFON-TRUNK/artifacts/build-36/distributables/dist

BTW, the saved artifacts are not the ispack installer version, which is nicer. These are the unzip in place versions.
