grails-core-gradlew.bat-installGood news: installing Grails from source is easy-peasey on Windows! Before you get started, you’ll need to have git and a JDK installed.

You can download both git and the JDK from the following locations:

Once these are both installed, set the JAVA_HOME variable from a command prompt. You’ll need to locate the exact java version which is in your Program Files\Java folder as it changes with each version.

set JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_25

Move to the folder where you would like to deploy Grails.

cd c:\apps\

And run the git clone command to start downloading the source.

git clone git://

Move into the folder which was created with the git clone command.

cd grails-core

Finally run the install command which will download any further dependencies and compile the application.

gradlew.bat install

And that’s it! I told you it was easy.
