I am trying to import an existing Grails project (using 1.3.0) into STS (2.3.2). I've installed Grails support, then followed the directions on http://www.grails.org/STS+Integration for importing an existing Grails project. I chose my dev directory (~/builds) as the root, STS scanned it, and offered several of my Grails (and other) projects in the directory to import, except the one I'm interested in! All others were listed. I tried creating a tarball of the project and importing it that way, but STS did not recognize it as a Grails project (or anything at all).
I tried Netbeans, and it imported the same project without trouble. What is the issue here? I tried comparing my project with other Grails projects (that are detected by STS) but I don't know what to look for - at the top level at least they all have the same directories and application.properties file.
I'm going to try raw Eclipse (with the Groovy plugin) and see if there is any better luck. I'd much prefer STS, however...
