issue 1655

Hi Ed/Roger,

1655 is about Groovy not working with Mojarra. The issue states that there is a classloader issue that prevents Groovy from being used in conjunction with JSFs (in the Weblogic env. could just be a config issue?).

But my devtest works just fine with Groovy. I modified my simple HelloBean devtest to make it work with Groovy.
Will outline what I needed to do to get this working:

1> added the asm related jars and groovy*.jar from Groovy 1.7.3 to the <glassfish-install-dir>/lib
2> added an ant task "groovyc" to the systest-per-webapp/build.xml in order to compile the .groovy files
3> converted my managedbean java class into a groovy script (HelloBean.groovy)
4> modified the web.xml to include what Ryan has pointed out in his blog
This step takes care of the classloading issue that could crop up.

Attaching my devtest here for review. Is there more to this issue than what I understand?
