You can add all the imports you want to your compiler configuration and they will be consistently available for all scripts.

Subject: Remembering imports between script invocations


We're considering supporting Groovy as an additional scripting language to our web gallery software jAlbum (, but one aspect bugs me: It doesn't seem like import statements are remembered between script invocations. This makes it far harder to use Groovy to prototype UIs within jAlbum's scripting console than for instance BeanShell (using the javax.script API). We currently support the slow BeanShell scripting language and JavaScript. BeanShell behaves well in this regard, remembering earlier imported packages between script invocations. Can this be added to Groovy or is there some API flag we can set?
