Interactive Groovy Console
Interactive Groovy console can be launched in any project.
Note that if dependencies in your project contain a Groovy library then the specified Groovy library will be used to launch the Groovy console. If the dependencies do not contain a Groovy library then the bundled Groovy library of the Groovy version 2.3.9 will be used.
