Hello everybody,
I am not able to compile and run Groovy-scripts. I take a very first example Gold.groovy . I can compile it with
groovyc Gold.groovy

.. when I try to start it thereafter with:
java Gold

.. I get the error message
"Fehler: Hauptklasse Gold konnte nicht gefunden oder geladen werden" - which means in english ~ "Main class not found"

Has anybody a hint what I could try or where to find the error?

Thanks in forehand

Since I can't read German, I think the compiler is complaining that there is no main method i.e. entry point to drive your class, for example

class Gold{
....
public static void main(String[] args){

}
}
