Good afternoon!

Is there documentation somewhere as to how to setup Groovy with JSF? I
installed the latest version of the groovy eclipse plugin, enabled the
groovy nature, and started coding.

I added the following to my web.xml


then went to create a managed bean:

import javax.faces.bean.ManagedBean
import javax.faces.bean.SessionScoped

  @ManagedBean(name = "detailBean")
public class OfferDetailDelegate {

     String test1 = "hello!";
     String test2 = "there!";


When I start up tomcat I get the following error. I see groovy in my
class/build path.

SEVERE: Unable to load annotated class:, reason:
java.lang.NoClassDefFoundError: groovy/lang/GroovyObject

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance!
