Updated for Grails 2.2.x
In this Grails Example, we will set up our development environment on a Windows system.
This first video shows you how to install Grails and Java on Windows. To install Grails, you will need a Java Developers Kit (www.java.com), and the Grails libraries (www.grails.org). This video will show you how to download and install both. It then shows how to set the appropriate environment variables to allow you to run Grails commands from the command prompt.

In the second video, you learn how to install an Integrated Development Environment (IDE) based on Eclipse called the Groovy & Grails Tool Suite. This tool is pre-configured for Groovy and Grails to give you features such as syntax highlighting and code completion. The video shows you how to install it and configure it for the Grails 2.2.x environment that you installed in the previous video.
