    Hi Geertjan

    do you know if there a way to enable code completion for Groovy classes I wrote myself?

    I use 6.5 M1 and code completion for methods in classes I wrote myself does not work?

    Is this not yet implemented or am I doing something wrong here?

    See http://www.netbeans.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=139286

    The groovy plugin is still what I consider "alpha" quality... but it has made great strides lately and hopefully will keep getting better quickly!

    Hi Markus,

    code completion is right now under heavy development and things are changing every day. I think that in M1 whole parts are not enabled and the parts for methods in your class will come soon.

    @Martin: Thanks for your reply. Looking forward to those features.

    Thanks a lot for your hard work. I am sure Netbeans will be the best IDE for Groovy in the future.

    Great stuff, I missed that a couple of years before.

    Do you know how the build works in case e.g. a java class inherits from a groovy class that in turn is derived from a java class again? (All 3 classes in the same project of course)

    @Joerg: Groovy's joint compilation is used, that means Java stubs for Groovy classes are generated -> Java sources are compiled against those -> Groovy classes are compiled finally
