  1. Netbeans issue -

Trying to create a Grails project from Netbeans leads to the following error in New project wizard

 Not all requested modules can be enabled: [Standard module
 org.netbeans.modules.groovy.kit jarFile: home/user_Me/software/netbeans-8.2/groovy/modules/org-netbeans-modules-groovy-kit.jar]

My netbeans.conf file has the following set as JAVA_Home


  1. Eclipse issue -

Using the route, new project > create new project > grails > grails project

leads to this error:

No Grails installation configured

So I tried configuring grails installation, and added grails home with following path:


which still gives error:

Specified directory does not appear to be a Grails installation

Why cant I create an empty Grails project even though I can run Grails commands through terminal?

  • Update 1: Netbeans gives the same error for creation of other projects like JAVA, Maven, PHP, html and so on! – AnjaniKD Nov 21 '16 at 9:54
  • Update 2: The version conflict of java and javac (which might be the root issue of this question) was solved using accepted solution in this link askubuntu.com/questions/300564/… – AnjaniKD Nov 21 '16 at 14:51
