Malkovich Moment: Gradle, Gradle, Gradle

What happens when you open Gradle, which is built on Gradle, via the NetBeans Gradle plugin? Well, the sky inverts itself and cats start falling from the clouds. Shortly thereafter, though, things start looking pretty sweet (click to enlarge the pic below):

Note: I didn't use the Gradle plugin from the NetBeans Plugin Portal, but directly from the Git repo, where the latest changes are found:

I also needed to make sure that the NetBeans Groovy plugins are installed from the Plugin Manager. Then I opened the sources above into the IDE, right-clicked the project node, and installed the sources directly into the running IDE.

Also, I downloaded the very latest Gradle distro, which right now is 1.5 RC 3, from here:

In the Options window of NetBeans IDE 7.3, I registered the Gradle distro like this:


Congratulations to Attila Kelemen for the brilliant work he's been doing on this plugin.
