Grails 1.1.1 and plugin release problems

Creating plug-in in Grails is easy, but it releasing is not. When I was trying to release my Burning Image plug-in I was hit with two problems. First was "svn: Authentication required" :

Importing project to https://svn.codehaus.org/grails-plugins/grails-burning-image. Please wait...
org.tmatesoft.svn.core.SVNAuthenticationException: svn: Authentication required for ' grails-plugins primary Subversion repository

To work around this problem just add file setting.groovy into your ~/.grails/ directory and add this lines:


Now you should be asked about yours credentials after executing:

grails release-plugin "-repository=grailsplugins"

Second problem was error:

Error executing script ReleasePlugin: groovy.lang.MissingMethodException: No signature of method: _PluginDependencies_groovy$_run_closure2.doCall() is applicabl
e for argument types: (java.lang.Boolean, java.lang.String) values: [true, distribution]

        ... 10 more

It occurs when I try to execute release plug-in command like this:

grails release-plugin -repository=grailsplugins

Just add " like previously and all should go smoothly.

Burning Image Grails plugin

Today I ended my work over my first Grails plug-in: Burning Image. This simple plug-in for images manipulation provides two types of image scaling, and allows to watermark image. In future i want to add crop option and maybe rounding image corner. If you looking for some more informations or you want to try it you could fine it Google code repository.
