Were now using GRAILS in one of our Maven-ized projects, and have it building using the Maven GRAILS plugin. We needed to roll this integration out to Husdon, our CI server which is running on a Debian box. We ran into a couple of snags.
Trying to build again we came across a different problem, where the GRAILS version was showing up as null, causing build errors. After some googling I found this useful post, and re-installed GRAILS with the updated grails_1.0.4-2_all.deb package, repeating the steps for the GRAILS executable.
