This post provides a walk-though of the steps to install Grails and Intellij Idea on ubuntu 11.10. I’m using Grails 1.3.7, Intellij Idea 10 (with Groovy & Grails support).
While attempting to install the VMware Tools on an Ubuntu 11.10 guest, I ran into the error
None of the pre-built vmmemctl modules for VMware Tools is suitable for your

A few weeks ago I spent some time looking at hosted repositories for source code control and version management. I looked at GitHub, Beanstalk and springloops. I’ve used GitHub for some open source projects but I choose Springloops for a private project I wanted to work on with another developer.
I first started developing with Grails in late 2009 based on a recommendation from a friend at large technology company that was developing a big project with it. Also based on his recommendation, I Intellij Idea as the IDE for my Grails development. I developed a few tools for my own use and then moved on to some website projects with Drupal, Joomla and WordPress.
