Package Approved

This package was approved as a trusted package on 16 Sep 2022.


Grails is an Open Source, full stack, web application framework for the JVM. It takes advantage of the Groovy programming language and convention over configuration to provide a productive and stream-lined development experience.
This package assumes that the Java JDK has already been installed and that the JAVA_HOME machine environment variable is pointing to installed JDK. I do not reference JDK Chocolatey package here to stay flexible.
The specific Grails version will be installed to folder defined by %chocolatey_bin_root% environment variable. After installing, this package will set the GRAILS_HOME environment variable and will add the GRAILS_HOME\bin folder to the machine PATH.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
