Thanks Yan! I was able to follow the rest of the instructions and have things running.
But don't know what to do next :) I think it is because I have 0 background with the grxxx technology stack, thus have no idea if I was building or running... So for me to move forward, it would be great to have a walk thru given a set of pre-built binaries.
Run a console, have a .sh file, e.g. bin/start-console.sh start/stop
Start an agent, e.g. bin/start-agent.sh start/stop
Simple as that, and hide the groovy/grail commands from me :)
I am glad to see that you could have it up and running.
I definitely have 2 things on my task list:
1) package so that you don't need to build it (this is essentially your suggestions) => no gradle, groovy or grails visible
2) add some standard glu scripts: for example a glu script that install a webapp into tomcat, a glu script that starts memcache...
In the meantime I would suggest the following:
* you can 'play' with the glu script used during the tutorial (if you followed the tutorial) and change the code that is in the various phases. Most likely what you will need is
shell.fetch => to download an artifact
shell.exec => to execute a shell script
