    Just tested. Groovy 4.x works fine on VMS x86-64.



    It works fine on VMS Itanium and VMS x86-64 with Java 8.

    It does not work on VMS Alpha as it has only Java 5.

    But I did a little research. Groovy 2.2 runs on
    Java 5 and therefore on VMS Alpha.

    Get the jar files and stuff them in [.lib],
    copy groovy-starter.conf from a newer Groovy to
    [.conf] and use the same groovy.com (customized
    for location, version and Java) and groovydef.com.

    And it works.

    $ dir [...]

    Directory DISK2:[ARNE.groovy]

    groovy-2_2_2.DIR;1 groovy.com;1 groovydef.com;1

    Total of 3 files.

    Directory DISK2:[ARNE.groovy.groovy-2_2_2]

    conf.DIR;1 lib.DIR;1

    Total of 2 files.

    Directory DISK2:[ARNE.groovy.groovy-2_2_2.conf]


    Total of 1 file.

    Directory DISK2:[ARNE.groovy.groovy-2_2_2.lib]

    commons-cli-1_1.jar;1 groovy-2_2_0.jar;1

    Total of 9 files.

    Grand total of 4 directories, 15 files.

    Obviously Groovy 2.2 does not have the same features
    as Groovy 4.0, because the update sequence
    2.2 -> 2.3 -> 2.4 -> 2.5 -> 3.0 -> 4.0 did add some
    useful stuff, but 2.2 is what is possible on VMS Alpha.
