I have pulled the STS gradle plugin at home using the following steps:
Install Groovy plugin first via:
Downloading the following bookmark to a local file first and import it into eclipse:
Then installing the Gradle Plugin from:
This resulted in functioning Gradle tools within my eclipse, most importantly, the ability to import a Gradle project.
I copied the entire eclipse folder onto my flash drive and brought it to work where I copied it onto my work machine. The springsource tool suite dashboard comes up once I start eclipse, however, when I go to import a gradle project I am presented no option to do so.
Is there some sort of functionality that ties the User License agreement, post install, to the system mac address that is blocking me from being able to copy my eclipse install to a new machine? I'm unable to do the install at work from scratch due to firewall and bandwidth restrictions.
