I'm looking at this too, as it stops work on building Spring using
Gradle. I updated groovy to 1.8.9, and still gradle fails. So I
thought about including the required dependencies to enable the groovy
tests. This will prove the software performs as originally intended.
So far, I've got the tests to compile but not yet run with groovy
1.8.9. I can continue with that, but I agree getting a more recent
groovy would be advantageous for reasons other than gradle.
