Is there no way to execute main features just on Strings ? Like to pass the groovy script as string and get back the auto-complition list as some objects ?
Same for text formatting for example ?

It would be a major benefit to use the code outside Eclipse, like in a Notepad or something simple
Most of the databases doesn't have PLSQL support. 
Groovy is great, but nobody wants to start Eclipse for a very basic script.
There are many database administrators which would enjoy using it, but is almost imposible to convince them to start working with Eclipse.

Unfortunately, it's not that easy.  Groovy-Eclipse editor is written using SWT, not swing.  Also, it requires an Eclipse workbench for file access, Java model manipulations, and command execution.  So, Groovy-Eclipse editor cannot be used outside of Eclipse itself.

I intend to use it for a simple database tool. Groovy should be used similar with PLSQL.

What I need is more or less the features like auto-complete and syntax highlighting.
Maybe there is a simple way to approach this features.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
